Změny v JDK 5.0 pro koncového uživatele povoleny

Sun se rozhodl použít pro JDK nový typ licence nazvaný Java Internal Use License, jak o tom informoval Ray Gans ve spotu Java Internal Use License (JIUL) released for JDK 5.0. Tato licence umožňuje, v rámci JDK, koncovému uživateli opravit jakoukoliv kritickou chybu, která by mohla ovlivnit běh nasazených java aplikací. Pod tímto novým typem licence bylo uvolněno JDK 5.0.

End-users of Sun's implementations of J2SE 5.0 now have the ability under the JIUL to fix any critical issue in the code that adversely affects their business operations. In addition, Sun will waive the commercial requirement to pass the Technology Compatibility Kit (TCK) for J2SE (a.k.a. the JCK) as long as all code changes are made with diligence to assure the resulting implementation remains true to the specification and that its use is restricted to the licensee's internal business or organization.
