JCP Copyright Licensing request

Monday, June 17, 2019 - 14:20 by Tatjana Obradovic

The open source community has welcomed Oracle’s contribution of Java EE into Eclipse Foundation, under the new name Jakarta EE. As part of this huge effort and transfer, we want to ensure that we have the necessary rights so we can evolve the specifications under the new  Jakarta EE Specification Process. For this, we need your help!

We must request copyright licenses from all past contributors to Java EE specifications under the JCP. Hence, we are reaching out to all companies and individuals who made contributions to Java EE in the past to help out, execute the agreements and return them back to Eclipse Foundation. As the advancement of the specifications and the technology is in question, we would greatly appreciate your prompt response. Oracle, Red Hat, IBM, and many others in the community have already signed an agreement to license their contributions to Java EE specifications to the Eclipse Foundation. We are also counting on the JCP community to be supportive of this request.

The request is for JCP contributors to Java EE specifications, once you receive an email from the Eclipse Foundation regarding this, please get back to us as soon as you can!

Should you have any questions regarding the request for copyright licenses from all past contributors, please contact mariateresa.delgado@eclipse-foundation.org who is leading us all through this process.

Many thanks!
