Re: Enhydra: Lutris Enhydra (Question)


Nuno,

First, thanks for the kudo. It's great to see the recognition of
ours and the Enhydra community's efforts to deliver a quality
platform.  Specs are only a part of real world solutions.

The answer to your question is absolutely "yes."  The more
Enhydra becomes a de facto standard, the more we _all_
benefit, non-commerically and commercially.  Lutris fully
hopes and expects that Enhydra products and services will
spread world wide through the productization efforts of Lutris
and our partners in the Enhydra community.  Note the link
in the new Enhydra.org reserved just for this eventuality.

As part of your products plans, e sure to read the licenses
associated with Open Source Enhydra technology.

Standard Enhydra is under a FreeBSD style license.  Enhydra
XMLC and the upcoming Enhydra Enterprise are both under
the Enhydra Public License (EPL), a variation of the Mozilla
license.

Regarding names, I don't believe there is a legal requirement
to carry the Enhydra name, expect in the copyright headers and
where the license requires that the Enhydra Java Application Server
copyright is preserved (in source files) and displayed (during start-up).

But, think about it... By incorporating the Enhydra name, we're
all contributing to the establishment of a well-known brand,
Enhydra, that again benefits us all.  By incorporating the Enhydra
name, your customers will know that  they're not stepping
backwards into proprietary technology.  Instead, they'll know that
there is an abundance of complementary services, including
world wide development resources, that are there to support their
technology decision.

Regards,
David
