Hi,

As Matt correctly states - powerEXT Core is MIT licensed - anybody can
use it, any of it, in any way, as they like.

The only thing some of the subprocedures in powerEXT depends on is
CGIDEV2.
I have written to Rich Dietrich, IBM, without getting any answer - so I
distribute CGIDEV2 with powerEXT Core (as several others do) - and I
believe
the "no answer" in this matter is "Silent Consent".

powerEXT Core is basically a RPGLE service program that enhances CGIDEV2
with a number of subprocedures (methods) - nothing more.

It can be run alone, it can be run with traditional CGIDEV2 programs and
it can be run with Scott's HTTPAPI and FTPAPI introducing CGIDEV2
capabilities
(eg. templates) in Scott's environment - or elements of it can be
integrated
into others work.


powerEXT Application Framework is another matter. It includes a number of
other peoples work from around the world. It can't be MIT licensed for the

same reason, because I have to respect other peoples licenses.


GNU GPLv3 is a way to provide maximum freedom for end users, still
protecting
the work from being commercial exploited by companies who dosn't give back

what they where given - to the Open Source community.

Btw, his name is Henrik :-)

Yeah I realized my mistake as soon as I saw my message come through... :P

What is the license cost of PowerEXT? Or did you open source your
developed
application to get around licensing?

I am only using PowerEXT Core which is MIT licensed. I've been avoiding
PowerEXT due to the GPLv3 license. I just wanted some of the procedures
he
has in PowerEXT Core. Thanks for bringing this up to highlight the
difference. I am recommending PowerEXT Core ONLY. There are conditions
in
the GPLv3, which PowerEXT is released under, that are not business
friendly. The MIT license; however, does not have the same restrictions.

I have actually been working on my own library that is very specific to
our
company and PowerEXT Core made it a little easier.

Hans hasn't chimed in yet so I'll do it for him. :)

There's also http://powerext.com/ that is based on CGIDEV2 but he has
added
a several useful procedures. I am currently using PowerEXT core for a
project and have been pretty impressed.
