Foundation Reaches Agreement with Sun
  +Microsystems to Allow Open Source Java Implementations</h3>
  +                                                <p>
  +The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) today announced that it has reached
  +an agreement with Sun Microsystems and members of the Java Community
  +Process (JCP) to secure the basic right to implement Java specifications
  +in open source. This is the result of extended dialog over the past
  +year.  Sun has pledged to use licenses that enable open source
  +independent implementations for all its Java specifications and Test
  +Compatibility Kits.  Sun has pledged this for all future Sun-led Java
  +specifications as well as key specifications already released.
  +</p>
  +                                                <p>
  +"It gives us great pleasure to have served the interests of the wider
  +open source community, largely made up of individuals and small groups
  +who may not have the resources and visibility to establish this level
  +of dialog," said Jason Hunter, ASF Vice-President, Java Community
  +Process. "To satisfy this trust, the ASF will be closely monitoring
  +the implementation details of the contents of this agreement to ensure
  +the gains represented by this agreement are not lost."
  +</p>
  +                                                <p>
  +"We believe, properly implemented, these changes will fertilize the
  +growing open source Java community, resulting in wider adoption of
  +Java technologies.  We also strongly believe the wider availability of
  +Test Compatibility Kits and the existence of solid open source Java
  +specification implementations will serve to improve and enhance Java's
  +compatibility," explained Hunter.

  The agreement responds to four concerns Apache raised in January and
  posted publicly on its Website at
  <a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/news/jspa-position.html">Apache JSPA Position</a>.
 These four points
  were seen as critical to Apache's support of and continued
  participation in the Java Community Process:
  </p>
                                                  <ol>
  <li>The right to freely implement specifications in open source</li>
  <li>The right for specification leads to release reference
    implementations and test kits in open source</li>
  <li>The right for specifications to be created more publicly</li>
  <li>The right to free access to test kits by open source, non-profit,
    and academic groups</li>
  </ol>
                                                  <p>
  These issues are being addressed via two mechanisms.  First, through a
  series of proposed revisions to the legal agreement signed when
  joining the Java Community Process, known as the JSPA.  The JSPA is
  currently undergoing revision by the JCP Executive Committee (EC).  As
  part of an early review, EC comments indicated a desire to address the
  concerns Apache raised.  Apache is pleased to see Sun, who leads the
  JSPA revision process, propose modifications which address these
  concerns.  This will help guide the JSPA revision process to
  conclusion.
  </p>
                                                  <p>
  Second, and for more immediate effect, Sun has agreed to proactively
  address Apache's issues for Sun-led JSRs in the following manner, as
  expressed in a letter of intent posted at
  <a href="http://jcp.org/aboutJava/communityprocess/announce/LetterofIntent.html">Letter
of Intent</a>:
  </p>
                                                  <ul>
  	<li>For Sun-led specifications finalized from here forward (including
  	    revisions to existing specifications) the license terms will allow
  	    independent implemenations under open source licenses.</li>
  	<li>The Test Compatibility Kit (TCK) binaries for these specifications
  	     will be made available at no cost to qualified open source,
  	     non-profit, and academic groups.</li>
  	<li>A three-member board, including a representative from the Apache
  	     Software Foundation, will assure an impartial qualification
  	     process.</li>
  	<li>Sun will provide substantial support to aid these qualified groups
  	    in the use and execution of the TCKs.</li>
  </ul>
                                                  <p>
  Apache welcomes other companies leading Java specifications -- many of
  whom have also desired more openness in the JCP -- in making similar
  pledges.

  +<h3>26 March 2002 - Apache Software Foundation Reaches Agreement with Sun
  +Microsystems to Allow Open Source Java Implementations</h3>
  +
  +<p>
  +The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) today announced that it has reached
  +an agreement with Sun Microsystems and members of the Java Community
  +Process (JCP) to secure the basic right to implement Java specifications
  +in open source. This is the result of extended dialog over the past
  +year.  Sun has pledged to use licenses that enable open source
  +independent implementations for all its Java specifications and Test
  +Compatibility Kits.  Sun has pledged this for all future Sun-led Java
  +specifications as well as key specifications already released.
  +</p>
  +<p>
  +"It gives us great pleasure to have served the interests of the wider
  +open source community, largely made up of individuals and small groups
  +who may not have the resources and visibility to establish this level
  +of dialog," said Jason Hunter, ASF Vice-President, Java Community
  +Process. "To satisfy this trust, the ASF will be closely monitoring
  +the implementation details of the contents of this agreement to ensure
  +the gains represented by this agreement are not lost."
  +</p>
  +<p>
  +"We believe, properly implemented, these changes will fertilize the
  +growing open source Java community, resulting in wider adoption of
  +Java technologies.  We also strongly believe the wider availability of
  +Test Compatibility Kits and the existence of solid open source Java
  +specification implementations will serve to improve and enhance Java's
  +compatibility," explained Hunter.

  <section name="The Agreement">
  <p>
  The agreement responds to four concerns Apache raised in January and
  posted publicly on its Website at
  <a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/news/jspa-position.html">Apache JSPA Position</a>.
 These four points
  were seen as critical to Apache's support of and continued
  participation in the Java Community Process:
  </p>
  
  <ol>
  <li>The right to freely implement specifications in open source</li>
  <li>The right for specification leads to release reference
    implementations and test kits in open source</li>
  <li>The right for specifications to be created more publicly</li>
  <li>The right to free access to test kits by open source, non-profit,
    and academic groups</li>
  </ol>
  
  <p>
  These issues are being addressed via two mechanisms.  First, through a
  series of proposed revisions to the legal agreement signed when
  joining the Java Community Process, known as the JSPA.  The JSPA is
  currently undergoing revision by the JCP Executive Committee (EC).  As
  part of an early review, EC comments indicated a desire to address the
  concerns Apache raised.  Apache is pleased to see Sun, who leads the
  JSPA revision process, propose modifications which address these
  concerns.  This will help guide the JSPA revision process to
  conclusion.
  </p>
  <p>
  Second, and for more immediate effect, Sun has agreed to proactively
  address Apache's issues for Sun-led JSRs in the following manner, as
  expressed in a letter of intent posted at
  <a href="http://jcp.org/aboutJava/communityprocess/announce/LetterofIntent.html">Letter
of Intent</a>:
  </p>
  
  <ul>
  	<li>For Sun-led specifications finalized from here forward (including
  	    revisions to existing specifications) the license terms will allow
  	    independent implemenations under open source licenses.</li>
  	<li>The Test Compatibility Kit (TCK) binaries for these specifications
  	     will be made available at no cost to qualified open source,
  	     non-profit, and academic groups.</li>
  	<li>A three-member board, including a representative from the Apache
  	     Software Foundation, will assure an impartial qualification
  	     process.</li>
  	<li>Sun will provide substantial support to aid these qualified groups
  	    in the use and execution of the TCKs.</li>
  </ul>
  
  <p>
  Apache welcomes other companies leading Java specifications -- many of
  whom have also desired more openness in the JCP -- in making similar
  pledges.
