Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-308) License files in shaded jar files
Date Wed, 10 May 2017 14:22:04 GMT

Sean Owen commented on LEGAL-308:
---------------------------------

IANAL but I think the answer is yes, and: by the way, the shade plugin can combine license
files in JARs into a single file in the product jar file. It's really easy to just include.

> It is a common pattern in many projects to use the Maven shade plugin to build a fat-jar
/ uberjar with dependencies that need to be "relocated" to avoid dependency version conflicts.
> When these dependencies have a License like BSD (that requires inclusion of the license
when redistributing binary versions of the dependency) is it required to put that license
into the shaded jar file as well?
> (my assumption is yes, just wanted to check)
