kcr@10910 2 OPENJDK ASSEMBLY EXCEPTION
kcr@10910 3
kcr@10910 4 The OpenJDK source code made available by Oracle America, Inc. (Oracle) at
kcr@10910 5 openjdk.java.net ("OpenJDK Code") is distributed under the terms of the GNU
kcr@10910 6 General Public License <http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html> version 2
kcr@10910 7 only ("GPL2"), with the following clarification and special exception.
kcr@10910 8
kcr@10910 9 Linking this OpenJDK Code statically or dynamically with other code
kcr@10910 10 is making a combined work based on this library. Thus, the terms
kcr@10910 11 and conditions of GPL2 cover the whole combination.
kcr@10910 12
kcr@10910 13 As a special exception, Oracle gives you permission to link this
kcr@10910 14 OpenJDK Code with certain code licensed by Oracle as indicated at
kcr@10910 15 http://openjdk.java.net/legal/exception-modules-2007-05-08.html
kcr@10910 16 ("Designated Exception Modules") to produce an executable,
kcr@10910 17 regardless of the license terms of the Designated Exception Modules,
kcr@10910 18 and to copy and distribute the resulting executable under GPL2,
kcr@10910 19 provided that the Designated Exception Modules continue to be
kcr@10910 20 governed by the licenses under which they were offered by Oracle.
kcr@10910 21
kcr@10910 22 As such, it allows licensees and sublicensees of Oracle's GPL2 OpenJDK Code
kcr@10910 23 to build an executable that includes those portions of necessary code that
kcr@10910 24 Oracle could not provide under GPL2 (or that Oracle has provided under GPL2
kcr@10910 25 with the Classpath exception). If you modify or add to the OpenJDK code,
kcr@10910 26 that new GPL2 code may still be combined with Designated Exception Modules
kcr@10910 27 if the new code is made subject to this exception by its copyright holder.
