This is actually a question for "the lawyers".  I suggest you go ahead and open a CQ making it clear the license is LGPL and see what they say. My *guess* is it might have to be dynamically linked, but, not sure.

We actually do have a policy that applies to using LGPL libraries:

Does the project's use fit within this policy?

I would like to make use of the libwebsockets library
( in the Eclipse TCF agent
( According to the libwebsockets license
(, it
should not be an issue to link this library statically and/or
dynamically with TCF agent (TCF agent is written in "C" code).

Can you please confirm it is okay to include usage of libwebsockets in
TCF agent. Please, let me know any additional details/information you
may need.
