Hi everyone,
I was wondering now with the release of JavaFX 1.2 well passed, if maybe it is legal to use the scenario jar on web applets. I want to build a widget using the scenario for my church's website, but I don't want to get the church into a legal mess. Anyone know where the license is for this thing? I see there are some questions about how to use the scenegraph, so maybe it is legal now to use it?

I think I may have received my answer. The license to the source files reads as follows:

So, if I understand this correctly, I can compile this code, and distribute the jar correct? It doesn't say anything about compiling and distributing a jar, but I would assume since the code can be distributed, then therefore the compiled byte-code can as well.
Am I correct?
Thanks,
Vance
