jlaskey@2 1
jlaskey@2 3
jlaskey@2 4 The OpenJDK source code made available by Sun at and
jlaskey@2 5 ("OpenJDK Code") is distributed under the terms of the
jlaskey@2 6 GNU General Public License <> version 2
jlaskey@2 7 only ("GPL2"), with the following clarification and special exception.
jlaskey@2 8
jlaskey@2 9 Linking this OpenJDK Code statically or dynamically with other code
jlaskey@2 10 is making a combined work based on this library. Thus, the terms
jlaskey@2 11 and conditions of GPL2 cover the whole combination.
jlaskey@2 12
jlaskey@2 13 As a special exception, Sun gives you permission to link this
jlaskey@2 14 OpenJDK Code with certain code licensed by Sun as indicated at
jlaskey@2 15
jlaskey@2 16 ("Designated Exception Modules") to produce an executable,
jlaskey@2 17 regardless of the license terms of the Designated Exception Modules,
jlaskey@2 18 and to copy and distribute the resulting executable under GPL2,
jlaskey@2 19 provided that the Designated Exception Modules continue to be
jlaskey@2 20 governed by the licenses under which they were offered by Sun.
jlaskey@2 21
jlaskey@2 22 As such, it allows licensees and sublicensees of Sun's GPL2 OpenJDK Code to
jlaskey@2 23 build an executable that includes those portions of necessary code that Sun
jlaskey@2 24 could not provide under GPL2 (or that Sun has provided under GPL2 with the
jlaskey@2 25 Classpath exception). If you modify or add to the OpenJDK code, that new
jlaskey@2 26 GPL2 code may still be combined with Designated Exception Modules if the
jlaskey@2 27 new code is made subject to this exception by its copyright holder.
