iris@41373 4 The OpenJDK source code made available by Oracle America, Inc. (Oracle) at
iris@41373 5 ("OpenJDK Code") is distributed under the terms of the GNU
iris@41373 6 General Public License <> version 2
duke@2 7 only ("GPL2"), with the following clarification and special exception.
duke@2 8
duke@2 9 Linking this OpenJDK Code statically or dynamically with other code
duke@2 10 is making a combined work based on this library. Thus, the terms
duke@2 11 and conditions of GPL2 cover the whole combination.
duke@2 12
iris@41373 13 As a special exception, Oracle gives you permission to link this
iris@41373 14 OpenJDK Code with certain code licensed by Oracle as indicated at
duke@2 15
duke@2 16 ("Designated Exception Modules") to produce an executable,
duke@2 17 regardless of the license terms of the Designated Exception Modules,
duke@2 18 and to copy and distribute the resulting executable under GPL2,
duke@2 19 provided that the Designated Exception Modules continue to be
iris@41373 20 governed by the licenses under which they were offered by Oracle.
duke@2 21
iris@41373 22 As such, it allows licensees and sublicensees of Oracle's GPL2 OpenJDK Code
iris@41373 23 to build an executable that includes those portions of necessary code that
iris@41373 24 Oracle could not provide under GPL2 (or that Oracle has provided under GPL2
iris@41373 25 with the Classpath exception). If you modify or add to the OpenJDK code,
iris@41373 26 that new GPL2 code may still be combined with Designated Exception Modules
iris@41373 27 if the new code is made subject to this exception by its copyright holder.
