Language in the JSR 336 TCK license appears to prohibit implementations of the Spec

    Details

      Description

      The TCK license for JSR 336 contains the following language in the definition of Product:

      "In addition, to be a Product, a Licensee product that implements a Java Environment Specification must: (a) have a principal purpose which is substantially different from a stand-alone implementation of that specification, while the value-added portion of the product operates in conjunction with the portion that implements the Java Environment Specification; (b) represent a significant functional and value enhancement over any stand-alone implementation of that specification; and (c) not be marketed as a technology which replaces or substitutes for a stand-alone implementation of that specification."

      This appears to prohibit any implementation of the spec!
