Subject Re: [xmlbeans-dev] RE: licenses for jaxb-api.jar and jax-qname.jar...?
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2003 10:59:24 GMT
I suspect the right alias is infrastructure@...

Infrastructure folks: we have an IP safety issue with two API JARs from Sun
that were included with the original xmlbeans contribution (jaxb-api.jar and
jax-qname.jar).  We're still climbing the learning curve on how to deal with
API JARs like that, and to be safe, as soon as the issue was brought up, we
removed those two JARs and dependencies on those JARs from the project.  May
or may not have been necessary, but certainly it's on the safe side.

To complete the purge, we need to ask for them to be physically removed from
the attic in CVS too.  Can somebody help?  The original location of the JARs


Thanks for any help,

I have added javax.xml.namespace.QName into the xmlpublic source directory.
David has removed our use of the jaxb interfaces.

PMC: please purge any references to jaxb-api.jar or jax-qname.jar from

I'll see if I can deal with these.  It looks like I can get QName from
ws-axis.  Where would one be able to get the jaxb api?

v1/external/lib contains two jar's which (at first appearance) may come
from sun. it's very important that all jar's which go into ASF
repositories are of known provenance and which have licenses which allow
redistribution. (the ASF repositories are public.)

can someone check where these jar's came from and what conditions they are
licensed under?

if they cannot be redistributed then they *must* be removed from the
repository ASAP. (and the pmc must be informed so that infrastructure can
take any necessary steps required to purge the jars from the attik). if
this is the case then the good news is that i'm think that web services
have some clean room implementations of these APIs so it may just be a
case of replacing sun jar's with ASF ones.
