"Confidential" code?

1 reply [Last post]
Anonymous

One of our attornies has asked me about confidentiality statements that
appear in JSP code which is obtained from Glassfish and built into Jetty
6.1.14, specifically:

(1) "Sun confidential" appears in
com/sun/appserv/server/util/PreprocessorUtil.java which is part of the
jsp-2.1.jar
(2) "Sun confidential" appears in
com/sun/common/util/logging/LogStrings.properties which is part of the
jsp-api-2.1.jar

I suspect these statements are no longer intended to apply; does anyone
know about the statements' current status and/or have they been discussed
before (I have not been able to find such a discussion)? I'd appreciate
any relevant information.

Thanks in advance,

I already had a conversation with Jan Bartel regarding this topic
earlier today.

Turns out the copyright notices for the above files were stale/inaccurate.
I've replaced them with the CDDL/GPL copyright header that is used
throughout
the GlassFish code.

I committed the changes to the source repositories for the upcoming
GlassFish 2.1.1 and GlassFish v3 releases.

Regards,

Jan
