Good News. I have finished examining all of the remaining runtime jars, and I
have found only one major problem.
The jar opendap-0.0.9.jar has distributes gnu.getopt, which is GPL. This makes
the whole jar GPL. I am not sure what the license for the jar would be if
getopt were not included...
The following jars have unknown licenses. In one case, it is unknown because I
was unable to register on the IBM DeveloperWorks website.
These need to be researched...
There are also some Microsoft JDBC jars that we can only redistribute if we
register. I think registering may be free, but I did not look that closely into
Overall, we are looking much better than I expected... The remaining risk
remains with the unknowns.
