Well, hopefully it's a simple question. Licensing issues have the habit
of not being so simple, though. :)
If I write a servlet that is a subclass of a Webware class, can I GPL or
LGPL my servlet?
If I write a servlet that isn't a subclass, but just makes calls to
Webware classes, can I GPL or LGPL my servlet?

license on "linking" to Webware code? It appears that there aren't any,
but I'd like to be sure. I need to use the GPL or the LGPL as the
university, my employer, wants it that way.
Thanks for your help...I just want to release my stuff without pissing
anyone off. :)

distributed under the most current license, which is GPL compatible.
(If there's an old copy of the Python license with Webware, I suppose
that would need to be fixed).
Webware is intended to be permissively licensed (i.e., BSD- or
