Hi

I'd like to understand the restrictions, if any, on redistributing javafxrt.jar with my application.

The blog post at http://www.oreillynet.com/onjava/blog/2007/05/javafx_new_wysiwyg_editor_... says:

"Nandini Ramani (Sun) clears up any confusion on the JavaFX user list:

'I would like to reiterate that it is perfectly fine to distribute your JavaFX applications, in fact we encourage it. I was just pointing out that it is not yet ready for commercial use. [Developers] are welcome to distribute their applications.

'Unlike other proprietary companies, we at Sun really do believe in open source and community involvement. I am sorry we do not have a licensing model in place yet, but I assure you that we are working on it and I will keep you all posted as soon as we have one in place. '"

However, the license in https://openjfx.dev.java.net/source/browse/openjfx/LICENSE/
is still the Technology Evaluation License.

Or am i looking in the wrong place?

thanks

Jason

Look at the project which creates javafxrt.jar, openjfx-compiler. Its license is GPL 2.
