Well, then I don't expect JTOpen will ever match your definition of Open Source. I see no reason to make the source for security and encryption available, nor does the IBM team as far as I know. What would you gain from IBM doing this, other than the ability to write your own password negotiation routines? What would IBM gain from doing this? Come up with a good business case for making the source for the AS400 object open, and maybe IBM will listen. Joe Pluta JTOpen Core Team > From: Kurt Goolsbee > > Not all of the source is available.
