Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-464) LGPL Runtime of Apache Weex
Date Wed, 26 Jun 2019 03:08:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-464?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16872879#comment-16872879

YorkShen commented on LEGAL-464:

Let me summarise what we have got already

1. It's fine if Weex only could include header files under 2-clause BSD license from Webkit
at compiling time and has a dynamic link to Webkit.so at runtime.
2. It's recommended that excluding Webkit.so from Weex convenience library. Users would include
the code snippet below to include both weex and webkit.
3. Google will ban all apps without 64 bit supported in 1st, August [1]. Though it's a good
idea of excluding Webkit.so from weex_sdk, weex community needs to publish next release ASAP
to give users enough time to upgrade Weex. I'd like to remain webkit.so in convenience library
of Weex only for next release.

> Hi, there
> I am a PPMC member of Apache Weex, and I'm suggested to move a discussion[1] about LGPL
runtime to here.
> Let me briefly introduce the situation.
> Apache Weex is a mobile framework and targets three platforms/environment currently,
e.g. Android, iOS, Normal Browser.
> In order to support Android Platform, Weex has to rely on Webkit at runtime, which is
under LGPL and BSD License. The header files(.h file) that Weex includes from Webkit are all
under BSD License and Weex.so has a dynamic link to Webkit.so at runtime. This is only for
Android platform as iOS/Browser has a built-in Webkit environment already.
> I'd like to know whether this complies ASF's License policy [3], Thanks.
> BTW: Currently, Weex bundles Webkit.so and Weex.so toghether in its convenience binary
for users' convenience, but Webkit.so could also be removed from convenience binary of Weex
if needed.
