Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-461) Guidance for using certain packages in Apache (incubating) Hudi
Date Fri, 07 Jun 2019 15:07:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-461?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16858730#comment-16858730


[~rvesse] [~jmclean] : Thank you for your prompt responses. We do shade and bundle some of
the above "platform" packages to ensure compatibility between different Hive versions in a
safe way. 

My question is if we do bundle these "platform" packages in Hudi fat jars, will the "platform"
exemption still apply ?

> We are in the process of releasing the first version of Apache (incubating) Hudi packages.
We are checking license compliance for all dependencies (including transitive) of our project.
> We found that there are 4 packages with licensing that do not fall into Category A, B
or X (as defined in [http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html)] 
> 1. jdk.tools:jdk.tools under *Oracle Binary Code License Agreement for the Java SE*
> 2. Java Transaction API under *OWN License* (See [http://download.oracle.com/otndocs/jcp/jta-1.1-classes-oth-JSpec/jta-1.1-classes-oth-JSpec-license.html)]
> 3.  JavaMail API and Streaming API for XML under *Sun Binary Code License*
> Hudi is *NOT* directly depending on the above packages** +*but they are being transitively  dependent
through other standard Apache projects - Apache Hadoop and Apache Hive.*+
> The dependency tree shows the following
> 1. org.apache.hadoop:hadoop-common:jar:2.7.3:provided
>        +- org.apache.hadoop:hadoop-annotations:jar:2.7.3:compile
>            \- jdk.tools:jdk.tools:jar:1.8:system
> 2. org.apache.hive:hive-metastore:jar:2.3.1:provided

>           +- javax.mail:mail:jar:1.4.1:provided
> Please also note that we will *NOT be bundling source files* of the above dependencies
but may bundle some of these binary dependencies with Hudi.  As mentioned as in [http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html|http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html)]),
we will be labelling these dependencies in a *NOTICE* file to inform our users about these
> For e:g, the NOTICE file would contain 
> """
> This project includes:

> Java Transaction API under OWN (See [http://download.oracle.com/otndocs/jcp/jta-1.1-classes-oth-JSpec/jta-1.1-classes-oth-JSpec-license.html)]
