Hello Team

I plan to use the SQcl as part of the installation routine of our product.

Can I take the Jar files and distributed this with own install routine of the software to the customer?

Or must the customer download the software via OTN before the installation to be from the license aspect on the save side?

And which licence the software has at all?

Thanks for this information.

Best Regards

Gunther

    Right now the license doesn't have anything to allow redistribution of sqlcl.  I will check with legal about possibilities of adding such a clause.  So the short answer is right now the customer would have to download the files.  The license is on the download page

    You may not:

    - use the programs for any purpose other than as provided above;

    - assign this agreement or give or transfer the programs or an interest in them to another individual or entity;

    - cause or permit reverse engineering (unless required by law for interoperability), disassembly or decompilation of the programs;

    - disclose results of any program benchmark tests without our prior consent.

    the specified above part is

    Contact your Oracle account representative, they can give you a better answer than I, but as I understand it, the answer to your question is 'no'.

    The Oracle product manager (‘Senior Principal Product Manager’) is not sure about the licensing terms of the software he is working with ? (I understand you don't want to say publicly anything "definitive", but I'm also sure you got the point.)

    This may come as a surprise to you, but product managers don't do "everything" at the big companies like Oracle.

    The answer is 'no' - you can't do that.

    Better?
