I would like to create a (probably renamed) variant of Class XMLMemento
(and inteface IMemento) that is not dependent on package
org.eclipse.ui.internal, and would package the modified class as a jar
to be used:

1. In junit test cases in launched from eclipse, but not running in the
plugin environment.

2. In external tools launched from eclipse.

3. In java applications completely separate from eclipse.

Can I acomplish this without violating the the terms of epl-v10, under
which XMLMemento is currently distributed?

Bill,

Ask your lawyer if you want legal advice. :-P

My free non-legal advice is that as long as you make the source code of
your modified variant publicly available, you're doing exactly what's
required.

Thanks Ed,
However, being a recluse by nature, I have never made code publicly
available. In all seriousness, could you suggest a low-cost way that I
could do that?

Bill,

Dump it in a zip file and have a link for it only any publicly
accessible website. Or open a bugzilla, and dump it there; even if it's
closed or rejected, it will still be recorded...

Will do, one of those. Thanks, Bill.
