Short answer: LGPL.  Longer answer: the obsolete precursor to the current LGPL.

A few questions:

1) Is OODT planning on distributing the Maven IDLJ plugin itself?

2) Am I correct in reading the POM in stating that jacorb is required
to build OODT?

3) I presume that IDL compilers produce a number of output files given
one or more input files.  What licenses are those output files under?
