Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-488) Bundling GPL+CPE (OpenJDK) into convenience binaries.
Date Thu, 07 Nov 2019 06:33:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-488?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16968962#comment-16968962
] 

Laszlo Kishalmi commented on LEGAL-488:
---------------------------------------

Right now we do not include OpenJDK or any other Linux / Category X components in the package.
It is almost the same as our zip binary package. The only difference id the Snap bindings,
a few extra command line args and a desktop file.

Later on we would like to package the OpenJDK within this package, depending on the outcome
of this issue.

> Apache NetBeans is a big Java based Desktop application. In order to run it needs a JDK.
> The OpenJDK is licensed GPL+CPE, as we read the CPE it would allow to bundle the JDK
with NetBeans as an executable.
> We have installers, hosted on Apache infrastructure that could benefit from this. We
also have a Snap package which is not hosted, but build on the Apache infrastructure. I do
not know if that matters or not, that's why  I mention it here.
> Also not being able to produce an out-of-the box convenience binaries is kind of hurts
our brand in a way that third party vendors are free to do that.
>  
> So what's the Legals opinion about bundling OpenJDK in the convenience binaries?
