I have the following scenario:
To create a language environment for a language X I need a mechanism
similar to the jdt classpath. Unfortunately I can't reuse the jdt
classes without modifications, though. At least not in a way that would
make sense.
I read through the CPL, but I am still not sure how to answer the
following questions:
1. Am I allowed to copy and modify jdt source files and integrate them
into my plugin?
2. Do I need to keep IBM's copyright notice in those source files? I am
planning to distribute the source code. Who owns the copyright to the
modified source files? For some files the only difference may be simple
renaming, such as Java -> X.
3. Is the answer to the above questions different for commercial /
non-commercial use of eclipse code? Mine is non-commercial open source.

Thanks,
Lutz
