aoqi@0 2 OPENJDK ASSEMBLY EXCEPTION
aoqi@0 3
iris@1874 4 The OpenJDK source code made available by Oracle America, Inc. (Oracle) at
iris@1874 5 openjdk.java.net ("OpenJDK Code") is distributed under the terms of the GNU
iris@1874 6 General Public License <http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html> version 2
aoqi@0 7 only ("GPL2"), with the following clarification and special exception.
aoqi@0 8
aoqi@0 9 Linking this OpenJDK Code statically or dynamically with other code
aoqi@0 10 is making a combined work based on this library. Thus, the terms
aoqi@0 11 and conditions of GPL2 cover the whole combination.
aoqi@0 12
iris@1874 13 As a special exception, Oracle gives you permission to link this
iris@1874 14 OpenJDK Code with certain code licensed by Oracle as indicated at
aoqi@0 15 http://openjdk.java.net/legal/exception-modules-2007-05-08.html
aoqi@0 16 ("Designated Exception Modules") to produce an executable,
aoqi@0 17 regardless of the license terms of the Designated Exception Modules,
aoqi@0 18 and to copy and distribute the resulting executable under GPL2,
aoqi@0 19 provided that the Designated Exception Modules continue to be
iris@1874 20 governed by the licenses under which they were offered by Oracle.
aoqi@0 21
iris@1874 22 As such, it allows licensees and sublicensees of Oracle's GPL2 OpenJDK Code
iris@1874 23 to build an executable that includes those portions of necessary code that
iris@1874 24 Oracle could not provide under GPL2 (or that Oracle has provided under GPL2
iris@1874 25 with the Classpath exception). If you modify or add to the OpenJDK code,
iris@1874 26 that new GPL2 code may still be combined with Designated Exception Modules
iris@1874 27 if the new code is made subject to this exception by its copyright holder.
