saxon-xqj – licenseZurück
Saxon-HE includes a separate JAR file, saxon9-xqj.jar, which contains Saxon's support for the XQJ interface, a standard API for access to XQuery engines from Java. In previous Saxon releases this was made available as part of the main JAR file. It has been decoupled because it has been pointed out that the license under which Oracle distribute XQJ is not a pure open source license under the definition used by the Open Source Initiative: specifically, it does not allow modifications, and it does not allow redistribution except as part of a product that satisfies all the compatibility tests. Saxon satisfies these conditions, but some users are only prepared to use code that conforms to OSI-approved licenses. If you fall into this category, please delete the saxon9-xqj.jar file. (In Saxon-PE and Saxon-EE, the XQJ components are delivered as part of the main Saxon JAR file.) Specification License Oracle USA (the ?Spec Lead?) for the XQuery API for Java specification (the ?Specification?) hereby grant a perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide, fully paid-up, royalty-free, irrevocable (except as explicitly se t forth below) license to copy and display the Specification, in any medium without fee or royalty, provided that you include the following on ALL copies, or portions thereof, that you make: 1.

While you are not obligated to make Java Materials available, if you do so and do not license them under reasonable royalty-free terms, the licensor reserves the right to revoke this license upon reasonable notice. In the event this occurs, the licensor will make available to you a su bstitute license under commercial terms, including possibly royalties and other restrictions.
