This is from the sourceforge.net summary page License: GNU Library or Lesser General Public License (LGPL)
it can be under either GPL/or LGPL for a license. i had thought about converting to the GPL3 as it will be compatible with the other Apache Software Licenses. LGPL is not compatible with ASL as far as i know.
so that is the reason i try to convert the notices attached to the source files using the Groovy language.
basically i am a bit frustrated that i have to include all the hibernate core, annotation and tool source files with my program distribution as those jars are in Fat Jar/ One Jar executable jar i use to launch my program. That and some other GPL technology force me to more than double the size of the deployment of my program. I will just deal with it. I cant believe how some people can make a program similar to mine and have it 5X smaller. It frustrates me!
i still didnt get a reply about converting BSD licenses to GPL. i never did it. i dont like to assume. i have BSD licenses and for some reason i am not remembering , these must be converted to GPL.
i tried to explain things better this time. i was tired from troubleshooting and coding last night.
Yes i know hibernate follows the LGPL. I cant in my situation.
Maybe i posted this message in the wrong forum but i thought other hibernate users would relate to having to include lots of java source code files in their programs deployment. hibernate IS < a great technology > though.
hello again- quick note since i brought it up originally. i just read where the newer bsd license is compatible with the gpl. that was one of my questions. so i am closer to my goal of releasing my project hopefully. i have more pieces to the puzzle.
