I owe a pointer to the JCK information and license....
Go to http://www.sun.com/software/opensource/java/faq.jsp
Select "12. TCKs"
There are some 32 "frequently asked questions" here. Probably #1, #5
and #10 are the most interesting ones:
1) Differentiates between "TCK" and "JCK" - its an easy place to
5) The license; through the embedded link:
10) A little discussion about what "substantially derived" means.
Its pretty vague. I am told that includes the ability to do a full
replacement of the virtual machine, which is probably the most major
change anybody would contemplate.
Disclaimer: My opinion follows. Does not necessarily reflect the views
of Sun Microsystems (yadda, yadda, yadda).
Sun has historically held two goals as the most important for Java:
It appears that any implementation which follows #2, will add to #1.
Hence, any such proposals are likely to looked favorably by Sun.
