|[wtp-pmc] FW: Clarifying Java EE DTD/Schema licenses|
Sounds like the death knell for redistribution of the J2EE DTDs/Schemas. If I learn anything else, I'll let you know, but for now WTP will have to assume no redist. -----Original Message----- From: Bill Shannon [mailto:bill.shannon@xxxxxxx] Sent: Thursday, May 11, 2006 11:19 AM To: Tim Wagner Cc: graham.hamilton@xxxxxxx Subject: Re: Clarifying Java EE DTD/Schema licenses Tim Wagner wrote: > Wondering if either of you gents can help me out on this question: The > 1.3/1.4/5.0 schemas and DTDs at > > > > http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/index.html > > > > contain the language "No part of this document may be reproduced in any > form by any means without prior written authorization of Sun and its > licensors, if any." > > > > but the page on which they occur says, "Unless otherwise licensed, code > in all technical manuals herein (including articles, FAQs, samples) is > provided under this License > <http://developers.sun.com/global/berkeley_license.html>."

My belief is that the copyright/license information in the individual files overrides the general information at the bottom of the page. Still, these files are available to you as a Java EE licensee under the terms of your license, so the license here may not be relevant to you.
