Hi all,

the question i have seems quite simple: Can i use the libraries of parts of GlassFish open source edition in closed source commercial projects?

Looking at the licenses (CDDL and GPL v2) isn't too enlightening for me. CDDL seems to be usable for such scenarios but not GPL.

Can someone please shed some light on the topic for me and explain in simple words what is allowed and what isn't? :)

best regards
