May be I am being too naive, but here i have some
understandings, perhaps you can help me put together
in terms of the official jargon...
1. I intend to allow anybody and everybody to use the
program (no money involved) until he/she wants to earn
money from it. Then may be this project would like to
have some credit (of course not money).
2. I don't mind anybody using the code and
designing/devicing something better or different using
it in some manner, provided he/she retains project's
3. I am still investigating whether or not the
implementation of the project can be completed using
free java software(on the design thoughts that I
have). I wonder if you can tell me/or direct me to
answers of -
a. What kind of license and form the project can take
in such a situation if its not possible to have
implementation using free software only, and we 'have
to' use Sun software?
b. Will it be possible to port (officially) the code
now written using Sun software to the free tools
available later ?
4. Also, I am not sure as to what do you mean when you
say, "More information about this point" (probably you
are pointing me to using J2SE ?) ..
Please guide me to carry it further..
