A collegue of mine tried to compile the cvs version of hermesjms. It seems hermesjms is dependent on jide classes that are not part of hermesjms.
Could anyone explain the dependencies? It seems like jide is a commercial framework. Are there any legal issues in using it or compiling it into the merlin binary?
Hermes uses a fully licensed version of JIDE for opensource usage.
Hermes itself is Apache 2.0 licensed and resitributable as such. If you directly use the JIDE API's you will need a JIDE license.

I don't know what merlin is, its licensing terms or how you wish to embed Hermes and not being a lawyer cannot give advice on this. I suggest you talk to your lawyers and JIDE themselves.
