I ended up putting pretty much all of the classes
in Jython.jar into my Bean (the org, com, and jxxload_help dirs). Note, I
have not modified the classes in any way, just added them to my JAR archive. So
here are my questions:
1) By doing this am I violating any provisions of
the Jython/Python license?
2) Am I still allowed to sell my bean, now that the
main guts of Jython are in my bean, without additional fees or royalties?
(If it matters, yes my bean does provide extensive new functionality beyond the
Jython interpreter, which I don't expose to the user. Also there is
extensive functionality residing in other pure Java classes in my JAR
3) Since I have not modified any of the classes, am
I under any obligation to distribute or make available the Jython source or
4) What are my obligations as far as displaying
notices of copyright and authorship belonging to Jython/Python? I'll
probably put the notices up anyways, unless that violates some kind of "implied
endorsement" clause of the Jython/Python licenses, but I just want to be
absolutely sure what my obligations are.
5) Anything else I need to be aware
I would love to hear from those of you selling
commercial packages with Jython or Python embedded. That would be
Oh yes, (J)Python rocks!
