 Description  « Hide

There are several statements in the TCK license that appear to conflict with the following requirement from JCP 2.8:

"TCK license terms must permit implementors to freely and publicly discuss the testing process and detailed TCK test results with all interested parties."

Items that continue be in conflict with the requirement include the following from section 2.1(b) of the attached TCK redline document:

(iv) develop other test suites intended to validate compatibility with the Java Specification(s) to which the TCK(s) licensed hereunder corresponds; or

(vi) use the TCK to make claims of comparative compatibility (for example, a claim either that a Product is “90% compatible” or that the Product is “more compatible” than another implementation of the same Java Specification).

This is the venue for tracking technical issues with the JSR 356 specification.

I am closing this issue because it isn't a technical; this is not the right venue for a discussion about the legal aspects of Oracle's TCK License.

Scott, I am going to ask you to raise this at in JCP Executive Committee directly through your representative, Mark Little.
