Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-488) Bundling GPL+CPE (OpenJDK) into convenience binaries.
Date Fri, 08 Nov 2019 05:24:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-488?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16969844#comment-16969844

Laszlo Kishalmi commented on LEGAL-488:

Well, I fear I do not understand any of this: "When you put OpenJDK in, I think you should
also put the source code for OpenJDK in the same archive file, or make the OpenJDK source
a separate download from the same place. You could "Make an Offer", but I'm hesitant to have
projects fade away to the Attic and the Attic PMC are left having to figure out how to answer
the offer your PMC made."

Probably if I'd describe how we plan to add OpenJDK into the Snap package, we would get a
better understanding. So I'd imagine, We simply download the OpenJDK binary release (most
probably from AdoptOpenJDK). Add that binary as a part of the pack, then just link Apache
NetBeans startup configuration to use that JDK by default. Right now the only place we can
add references to OpenJDK and/or AdoptOpenJDK is the store page at: [https://snapcraft.io/netbeans]

I've contacted a adoptopenjdk people for how to meet the openjdk license needs.

>            Priority: Major
> 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?
