Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-171) OK to distribute code containing the JavadocFixTool
Date Fri, 21 Jun 2013 15:02:20 GMT

Martijn Verburg commented on LEGAL-171:
---------------------------------------

Fair point, well at least there's the initial workaround until the legal aspect can be confirmed.
 My IANAL understanding is that source and binary distros had to retain the Oracle license.
 Looks like it might have to be a chat with the Oracle lawyers to confirm....

> Oracle have released a tool which can be used to fix a vulnerability in Javadoc created
by earlier versions of their javadoc application.
> We'd like to include the code as part of a Maven plugin, but doubts have been raised
as to whether the license allows this.
> If it's relevant, the code would need to be amended slightly to fix some bugs and change
the package name so it can be called from other packages.
