Subject Re: cvs commit: jakarta-commons-sandbox/daemon/src/java/org/apache/commons/launcher Launche
Date Wed, 10 Jul 2002 19:38:36 GMT

Actually, "donated by Sun Microsystems, Inc." is really an 
overstatement. More correctly, this code was developed by me personally 
while I was on unpaid leave from Sun. Also, the current iteration that 
was committed to this project was a completely new rewrite from the 
Launcher code that I developed for Sun's Java Web Services Developer 
Pack. So, as far as legal issues go, I would say that we are OK.

The reason I put it in this project was that there is a desire to 
include a Launcher in the Tomcat 5.0 proposal that is currently be voted 
on in the tomcat-dev mailing list.

Hope that helps,
