After reading GPL and LGPL, I still really don't understand the license agreements. I'm looking for a driver to use in a commercial application and prevent any lawsuits or anything bad for ownership issues. Please advise.
I "heard" that JBuilder comes with JDataConnect, but haven't been able to confirm it. Can anyone verify? And if so, is it the trial version or the real thing?
Thanks.

"K McG",
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp .
We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please re-register and select a new name which meets the requirements.
Thanks.
Dave

Hi Dave,
Those are my initials. Two initials seperated by a space. What's wrong with that?

You are allowed to provide an initial for your first name (although your full first name is prefered), but it must be your full last name. Therefore K McGinl is valid but K McG is not...
The whole 'naming issue' crops up all the time and is not perfect, but it really does help to provide a better atmosphere (hence the request to use the full first name) ans we are comitted to enforcing it.
ta,
Dave
