Ooh - I didn't realise that; interesting :-)
Yes, it includes a JVM (IBM's proprietary J9 one) and most of the
Eclipse framework for the GUI stuff.
Last I checked the Eclipse license is a weak copy-left license, and
thus persona-non-grata in Apache - in the same way that MPL and others
are not welcome.
Yes, they now clarified, and that is not what they might want to
contribute, it is only the writer C++ view itself:
I have seen some questions on what exactly it is that is being offered,
but nobody from IBM has replied with any specifics yet.
Since this is (by now) at least the fourth significant announcement &
press interest in ~the same thing (since 2007), and still no code - I'm
not trying to hold my breath like I did the first time ;-) But perhaps
there'll be something useful we can re-use.
Lets hope so. It seems the contribution is currently stalled on apache
actually getting some sources up and running with all copyleft code
erased (they are still struggling with migrating to svn and getting a
software grant from oracle with all the proper files). Which they hope
might be possible this year. So it might be a while before we see any
actual code. Hopefully it will be easy to adopt.
