Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-153) May I use a GPL 2.0-licensed Java library in my unit tests?
Date Tue, 08 Jan 2013 12:30:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-153?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13546829#comment-13546829

Mark Thomas commented on LEGAL-153:
-----------------------------------

<infra-hat>
Dependencies should not be checked in to svn. Downloading from Maven is the way to do this.

> 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
