aoqi@0 1
aoqi@0 3
aoqi@0 4 The OpenJDK source code made available by Sun at and
aoqi@0 5 ("OpenJDK Code") is distributed under the terms of the
aoqi@0 6 GNU General Public License <> 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
aoqi@0 13 As a special exception, Sun gives you permission to link this
aoqi@0 14 OpenJDK Code with certain code licensed by Sun as indicated at
aoqi@0 15
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
aoqi@0 20 governed by the licenses under which they were offered by Sun.
aoqi@0 21
aoqi@0 22 As such, it allows licensees and sublicensees of Sun's GPL2 OpenJDK Code to
aoqi@0 23 build an executable that includes those portions of necessary code that Sun
aoqi@0 24 could not provide under GPL2 (or that Sun has provided under GPL2 with the
aoqi@0 25 Classpath exception). If you modify or add to the OpenJDK code, that new
aoqi@0 26 GPL2 code may still be combined with Designated Exception Modules if the
aoqi@0 27 new code is made subject to this exception by its copyright holder.
