I have a question about the licensing.
we’'re just starting an open source ERP + CRM project in germany
and one of our features will be the integration of social software.
our project will be licensed using the Eclipse Public License (EPL).
the OSS project is based on eclipse plugin technology and the
eclipse RCP (rich client platform)
our customers will be small and medium sizred companies and
parallel to the open source project there will be a commercial
company to give warranty and support to the customers.
we want to use the Jive Messenger as XMPP server and so we
want to give the binary unmodified version to our customers.
is this allowed ?
because we’'re using the EPL we cannot use the GPL for our own
for the eclipse RCP clients we can use the smack API, but we
want to ship the Jive Messenger as server, too.
thanks for information and clarification.
