  • Spring license

    Hi,

    first of all: I didn`t find a better forum to place this so I took the "Meta" forum.

    How are your plans for Spring concerning to the license.
    Will Spring always be Open Source or do you plan to distribute it under a different licensing model?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Apache 2.0 is and will continue to be our license.

      This comment on class DefaultPropertiesPersister is causing some grey hair for us:
      Code:
      * <p>Due to the fact that java.util.Properties' own load and store
       * methods are implemented in a completely unextensible fashion,
       * the persistence code had to be copied and pasted into this class,
       * allowing to specify any Reader or Writer.
       *
       * <p>All persistence code in this class is subject to the license
       * of the original java.util.Properties file. The unextensible code
       * there should be permission enough to copy and paste it here.
      Is it really ok to copy Suns code just because it written badly?

        DefaultPropertiesPersister has been reimplemented (released in Spring 1.1.4) so that it now takes no code from the Java libraries.
