Hi Nic!



What are you planning?



The original author of xAPFramework.Net (more recently referred to as xFx)
was Stuart Booth. He distributed the software with the GNU General Public
License (GPL) Version 2, June 1991. A copy of the licence file he
distributed with the code is attached.



When Stuart moved onto other things I took over and upgraded the framework
to .Net v2, made a bunch of performance enhancements and a fixed a few
defects. Licensing remains the same.



The xAPFramework.Net is now in maintenance mode. I have been working on a
replacement for it (under the working title of xFx-Express) for a couple of
years now; it's quite complete and should be in beta soon. It's completely
new; no code in common and pretty different from the old framework. It's
written from the point of view of the consumer of the framework, having a
fluent interface syntax. The design is based on a few years experience of
using the old framework. I now use the new framework for all my
applications
apart from Viewer. The next major version of Viewer (v4 currently in Beta)
continues to use xAPFramework. Viewer v5 (2010) will migrate to
xFx-Express.



The licensing for xFx-Express is yet to be decided and I'm happy to discuss
(edward at erspearson.com).

xAPFramework is GPL, mature, well tested etc.

So there's your choice from this provider.

Can't speak for any of the other frameworks.

Subject: [xap_automation] Licensing of xap .net library








I was searching a lot
but was not able to find out what kind of license the xAP .net library has.

http://www.edjo.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/edward/xAP/xFx/xFx_main.htm
referred to e.g. in
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/xap_automation/message/4257

Is it true that it's under BSD according to this, or is zmxap something
different.
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/xap_automation/message/2462

Thanks in advance

Regards
Nic

The GNU General Public License (GPL)
Version 2, June 1991

Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

Preamble

The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to
sh=
are and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended
=
to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure
t=
he software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies
=
to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other
program=
whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation sof=
tware is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You
ca=
n apply it to your programs, too.

When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price.
Our=
General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedo=
m to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if
you=
wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you=
can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that=
you know you can do these things.

To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to
=
deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These
restrict=
ions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute
copies=
of the software, or if you modify it.

For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or
=
for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You
m=
ust make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you
m=
ust show them these terms so they know their rights.

We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2)
=
offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
distribute=
and/or modify the software.

Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that
e=
veryone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If
th=
e software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its
recipient=
s to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems
int=
roduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations.

Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We
=
wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will
individ=
ually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To
=
prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for
ev=
eryone's free use or not licensed at all.

The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
modification=
follow.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION

0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a
notic=
e placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the
ter=
ms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers
to any such=
program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either
the Progra=
m or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work
contai=
ning the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications
=
and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is
inclu=
ded without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee
is addres=
sed as "you".

Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
covere=
d by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the
Progr=
am is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if
it=
s contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having
be=
en made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what
thePr=
ogram does.

1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source
code=
as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appr=
opriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and
disclaim=
er of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and
=
to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the
Progra=
m a copy of this License along with the Program.

You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you
m=
ay at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.

2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it,
=
thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such
modi=
fications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you
als=
o meet all of these conditions:

a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating
tha=
t you changed the files and the date of any change.

b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole
or=
in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be=
licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of t=
his License.

c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run,
=
you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use in the
mos=
t ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an
appropriat=
e copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying
=
that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program
un=
der these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
Licen=
se. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally
=
print such an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required
=
to print an announcement.)

These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable
s=
ections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be
reasonabl=
y considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this
Licens=
e, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them
a=
s separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a
wh=
ole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole
mus=
t be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees
ex=
tend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of
who=
wrote it.

Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your
=
rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise
t=
he right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works
base=
d on the Program.

In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
with=
the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage=
or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of th=
is License.

3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under
Se=
ction 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1
an=
d 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:

a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source
cod=
e, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on
a=
medium customarily used for software interchange; or,

b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to
gi=
ve any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of physically
perfo=
rming source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the
correspo=
nding source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2
ab=
ove on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,

c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to
distri=
bute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only for
nonco=
mmercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code
o=
r executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)

The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making
=
modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code means
all=
the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface=
definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and install=
ation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source code
d=
istributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in
eithe=
r source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and
s=
o on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that
com=
ponent itself accompanies the executable.

If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to
=
copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the
s=
ource code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code,
e=
ven though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with
th=
e object code.

4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except
a=
s expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy,
mod=
ify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically
t=
erminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have
received=
copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their license=
s terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.

5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed
i=
t. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute the
=
Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if
you=
do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Pr=
ogram (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of
t=
his License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying,
distrib=
uting or modifying the Program or works based on it.

6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
Program=
), the recipient automatically receives a license from the original
licenso=
r to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and
cond=
itions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients'
exer=
cise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing
co=
mpliance by third parties to this License.

7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
infring=
ement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions
ar=
e imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that
cont=
radict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the
cond=
itions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy
simultane=
ously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent
obligatio=
ns, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all. For
ex=
ample, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of
=
the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through
=
you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be
=
to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.

If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any
p=
articular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply
and=
the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.

It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
patents=
or other property right claims or to contest validity of any such claims; =
this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free
s=
oftware distribution system, which is implemented by public license
practic=
es. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of
softw=
are distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application
o=
f that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is
willi=
ng to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
im=
pose that choice.

This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a
=
consequence of the rest of this License.

8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain
c=
ountries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original
copyr=
ight holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit
g=
eographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that
dist=
ribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In
such=
case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body o=
f this License.

9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
=
the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be
sim=
ilar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address
=
new problems or concerns.

Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
speci=
fies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
later ve=
rsion", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
either of=
that version or of any later version published by the Free Software Founda=
tion. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License,
you=
may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.

10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
program=
s whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author to ask
f=
or permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software
Found=
ation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions
=
for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the
fr=
ee status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the
shar=
ing and reuse of software generally.

NO WARRANTY

11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
FO=
R THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
OTHER=
WISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE
T=
HE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
OR IMPLIE=
D, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY=
AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AN=
D PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE
DEFECTIV=
E, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.

12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
W=
ILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
REDISTRI=
BUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
INCLUDIN=
G ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF
=
THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS
=
OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR
THI=
RD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
PROGRAMS),=
EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF =
SUCH DAMAGES.

END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
