jminatel - license terms
 
Hi jminatel [moderator]-

Maybe I missed it, but I haven't been able to find any info about the licensing agreement related to the source code. I bought the book and would like to use some of the source as the basis for building swt applications. I'd like to upload my program to my website so my friends, co-workers, and maybe even a perspective employer may look at my hobby and see what i have accomplished.

Are there any restrictions on the use of the source code? If I overlooked the licensing terms, please point me in the right direction.

Please help. I put 6 months into my project. It is over 5,000 lines of code. And it isnt all Jackwind Li. Definitely some cool original code from me. But i have to admit there is some "black box code" from Jackwind on the neater tricks and that is why i am asking. If i get your permission, i will have to follow section 6 of the lgpl on some libraries that i used as well.

thanks very much,
3rdshiftcoder

Hi 3rdshiftcoder: Give me a day or two to see if I can verify with the editor that this is OK.

Hi Jim-
that is very cool :-)
Now i can stick with SWT and Java, Hibernate,
and maybe Groovy and dont have to switch
languages and GUI toolkits.
Thank you, Wrox, and JackWind!
have a great summer,
3rdshiftcoder
