Licensing and javascripts
« on: June 22, 2007, 10:17:49 PM »
Hi All

Now that we can build our own web servers/applications I started snooping around the internet for components to use, as becomes a member of the ultra lazy programmers club.

In an earlier reply to a question of mine regarding using javascript libraries, Bruce warned me against licensing - especially open source.

So my question is this: which licenses are acceptable and which are not.

A case in point: They have a lot of stuff I would like to use. Their license is LGPL (

This seems fine to me and OK, but what ro I know.

Your thoughts?

Mozilla and BSD are great.
So is "public domain".

LGPL should be fine.

GPL is not so good. (As it would make your whole clarion app open source)

Bottom line - if in doubt write to the authors and ask. There are a couple DHTMLGoodies things in NetTalk, I wrote to them and they gave permission for us to use it.
