Subject Re: Making a redist of all the javax.* packages
Date Fri, 30 Dec 2005 18:01:43 GMT
I'm not a lawyer but that sounds like redistribution anyway which
would violate the license.
I think we'll have a good solution when we have the maven feature that
allows you to use different implementations, like geronimo open
source, easily. It's in the maven 2.1 design docs
