Subject [jira] [Updated] (LEGAL-153) May I use a GPL 2.0-licensed Java library in my unit tests?
Date Tue, 08 Jan 2013 12:28:12 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-153?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Philip Harvey updated LEGAL-153:
--------------------------------

    Description: 
I am a Qpid committer.  

I have read the Previously Asked Questions at http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html but
am still unsure about my intended usage of a Java library.

I am considering using a library called ClasspathSuite (http://johanneslink.net/projects/cpsuite.jsp)
in the Qpid automated test suite.  It provides convenient functionality to search for tests
matching certain criteria.  

ClasspathSuite is GPL 2.0 licensed.

It will be used when compiling and running tests. Depending on technical questions that are
not yet finalised, it will either be:

1. Committed to the Qpid Subversion repo, or
2. automatically downloaded from a Maven repository at build time by our build script.

I am not intending to distribute ClasspathSuite with Qpid releases.  

I would like to know if my intended usage would be permitted.

Thanks,
Phil
