  • Does the GPL force me to release my own code if I run it on dm Server

    Hi,

    I read the faq http://www.springsource.com/products...r/licensingfaq.

    But one think I do not understand.

    If my customer installs dm Server itself, do I have to release my dm Server application (which I have developed myself) under GPL?

    Thank you

    As the licensing FAQ explains, you are only required to release software under the GPL if you "convey" the software and you modify the software or create a “derivative work” of it. You'll need to seek legal advice if you need interpretation of the GPL.

    Of course, if both you and your customer obtain a commercial license for the dm Server and comply with the terms of that license, you will not need to release your application under the GPL.
