The current license on all the source files is GPL v2, not LPGL, no classpath exception.
That means that using it in any commercial application is illegal, only GPL apps can link to Scenegraph.
When is this going to change? Or is Sun planning to keep it like this and just release the Java FX SDK under a more commercial-friendly license?
