Regarding Java open source

1 reply [Last post]

To whom it may concern,

I am Sook, in charge of overseas business from Mobirati.

My company used to have Java Commercial license (JTWI).

And now, we are planning to develop mobile implementation based on Java
open source.

Questions are following:

1. Is it possible for our company to have two different
implementations, one based on open source and the other, commercial code if
we have commercial license?

2. Is there any restriction that we release the product that is
developed based on Java open source?

Your reply would be most appreciated.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Sook

Yes, because the phoneME license is under GPL you will need to have all
of the source code on your system be under the GPL V2 license and
restrictions as well. This would mean that you would need to have any
code that you provide on the phone made available in source form.
