Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-137) Ownership of WSDLs and XSDs created by interrogating proprietary web services
Date Thu, 31 May 2012 13:59:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-137?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13286572#comment-13286572

Sam Ruby commented on LEGAL-137:
--------------------------------

re: "other implementors of the standard"... is this a standard?  The title of this JIRA implied
that this interface is considered proprietary by the owner.

re: "Maybe a java impl that could have a java2wsdl run on it?".  I don't think the proper
question is one of what tool could be used to produce the output.  I think the question is
more along the lines of "are such APIs copyrightable?" (the answer to that question seems
unclear these days), and independent of the answer to that question: do the authors of this
interface consider it to be proprietary?

> In the .NET framework, any service can be interrogated to find its Web Services API (represented
by a set of WSDL and XSD files), using a .NET tool called "disco.exe".  My question pertains
to the ownership (or lack thereof) of such WSDLs and XSDs.  Can these be redistributed in
original or modified form in an Apache project?
