associated requirements and responsibilities are cumulative.
Capitalized terms used in this License are defined in the Glossary.

2.  License Grants.

2.1.  Original Contributor Grant.  Subject to Your compliance with
Sections 3, 8.10 and Attachment A of this License, Original
Contributor grants to You a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive
license, to the extent of Original Contributor's Intellectual Property
Rights covering the Original Code, Upgraded Code and Specifications,

b) Other than the licenses expressly granted in this License, Original
Contributor retains all right, title, and interest in Original Code
and Upgraded Code and Specifications.

2.2.  Your Grants.

Your Error Corrections and Shared Modifications, of the same scope and
extent as Original Contributor's licenses under Section 2.1 a) above
relative to Research Use, Attachment C relative to Internal Deployment
Use, and Attachment D relative to Commercial Use.

b) To Original Contributor.  You hereby grant to Original Contributor
a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual and irrevocable
license, to the extent of Your Intellectual Property Rights covering
Your Error Corrections, Shared Modifications and Reformatted
Specifications, to use, reproduce, modify, display and distribute Your
Error Corrections, Shared Modifications and Reformatted
Specifications, in any form, including the right to sublicense such
rights through multiple tiers of distribution.

c) Other than the licenses expressly granted in Sections 2.2 a) and b)
above, and the restriction set forth in Section 3.1 d)(iv) below, You
retain all right, title, and interest in Your Error Corrections,
Shared Modifications and Reformatted Specifications.

2.3.  Contributor Modifications.  You may use, reproduce, modify,
display and distribute Contributor Error Corrections, Shared
Modifications and Reformatted Specifications, obtained by You under
this License, to the same scope and extent as with Original Code,
Upgraded Code and Specifications.

2.4.  Subcontracting.  You may deliver the Source Code of Covered Code
to other Licensees having at least a Research Use license, for the
sole purpose of furnishing development services to You in connection
with Your rights granted in this License.  All such Licensees must
execute appropriate documents with respect to such work consistent
with the terms of this License, and acknowledging their
work-made-for-hire status or assigning exclusive right to the work
product and associated Intellectual Property Rights to You.

3.  Requirements and Responsibilities.

3.1.  Research Use License.  As a condition of exercising the rights
granted under Section 2.1 a) above, You agree to comply with the
following:

a) Your Contribution to the Community.  All Error Corrections and
Shared Modifications which You create or contribute to are
automatically subject to the licenses granted under Section 2.2 above.
You are encouraged to license all of Your other Modifications under
Section 2.2 as Shared Modifications, but are not required to do so.
You agree to notify Original Contributor of any errors in the
Specification.

b) Source Code Availability.  You agree to provide all Your Error
Corrections to Original Contributor as soon as reasonably practicable
and, in any event, prior to Internal Deployment Use or Commercial Use,
if applicable.  Original Contributor may, at its discretion, post
Source Code for Your Error Corrections and Shared Modifications on the
Community Webserver.  You may also post Error Corrections and Shared
Modifications on a web-server of Your choice; provided, that You must
take reasonable precautions to ensure that only Licensees have access
to such Error Corrections and Shared Modifications.  Such precautions
shall include, without limitation, a password protection scheme
limited to Licensees and a click-on, download certification of
Licensee status required of those attempting to download from the
server.  An example of an acceptable certification is attached as
Attachment A-2.

c) Notices.  All Error Corrections and Shared Modifications You create
or contribute to must include a file documenting the additions and
changes You made and the date of such additions and changes.  You must
also include the notice set forth in Attachment A-1 in the file
header.  If it is not possible to put the notice in a particular
Source Code file due to its structure, then You must include the
notice in a location (such as a relevant directory file), where a
recipient would be most likely to look for such a notice.

d) Redistribution.

(i) Source.  Covered Code may be distributed in Source Code form only
to another Licensee (except for students as provided below).  You may
not offer or impose any terms on any Covered Code that alter the
rights, requirements, or responsibilities of such Licensee.  You may
distribute Covered Code to students for use in connection with their
course work and research projects undertaken at accredited educational
institutions.  Such students need not be Licensees, but must be given
a copy of the notice set forth in Attachment A-3 and such notice must
also be included in a file header or prominent location in the Source
Code made available to such students.

(ii) Executable.  You may distribute Executable version(s) of Covered
Code to Licensees and other third parties only for the purpose of
evaluation and comment in connection with Research Use by You and
under a license of Your choice, but which limits use of such
Executable version(s) of Covered Code only to that purpose.

(iii) Modified Class, Interface and Package Naming. In connection with
Research Use by You only, You may use Original Contributor's class,
interface and package names only to accurately reference or invoke the
Source Code files You modify.  Original Contributor grants to You a
limited license to the extent necessary for such purposes.

(iv) Modifications.  You expressly agree that any distribution, in
whole or in part, of Modifications developed by You shall only be done
pursuant to the term and conditions of this License.

e) Extensions.

(i) Covered Code.  You may not include any Source Code of Community
Code in any Extensions;

(ii) Publication.  No later than the date on which You first
distribute such Extension for Commercial Use, You must publish to the
industry, on a non-confidential basis and free of all copyright
restrictions with respect to reproduction and use, an accurate and
current specification for any Extension.  In addition, You must make
available an appropriate test suite, pursuant to the same rights as
the specification, sufficiently detailed to allow any third party
reasonably skilled in the technology to produce implementations of the
Extension compatible with the specification.  Such test suites must be
made available as soon as reasonably practicable but, in no event,
later than ninety (90) days after Your first Commercial Use of the
Extension.  You must use reasonable efforts to promptly clarify and
correct the specification and the test suite upon written request by
Original Contributor.

(iii) Open.  You agree to refrain from enforcing any Intellectual
Property Rights You may have covering any interface(s) of Your
Extension, which would prevent the implementation of such interface(s)
by Original Contributor or any Licensee.  This obligation does not
prevent You from enforcing any Intellectual Property Right You have
that would otherwise be infringed by an implementation of Your
Extension.

(iv) Class, Interface and Package Naming.  You may not add any
packages, or any public or protected classes or interfaces with names
that originate or might appear to originate from Original Contributor
including, without limitation, package or class names which begin with
"sun", "java", "javax", "jini", "net.jini", "com.sun" or their
equivalents in any subsequent class, interface and/or package naming
convention adopted by Original Contributor.  It is specifically
suggested that You name any new packages using the "Unique Package
Naming Convention" as described in "The Java Language Specification"
by James Gosling, Bill Joy, and Guy Steele, ISBN 0-201-63451-1, August
1996.  Section 7.7 "Unique Package Names", on page 125 of this
specification which states, in part:

"You form a unique package name by first having (or belonging to an
organization that has) an Internet domain name, such as "sun.com".
You then reverse the name, component by component, to obtain, in this
example, "Com.sun", and use this as a prefix for Your package names,
using a convention developed within Your organization to further
administer package names."

3.2.  Additional Requirements and Responsibilities.  Any additional
requirements and responsibilities relating to the Technology are
listed in Attachment F (Additional Requirements and Responsibilities),
if applicable, and are hereby incorporated into this Section 3.

4.  Versions of the License.

4.1.  License Versions.  Original Contributor may publish revised
versions of the License from time to time.  Each version will be given
a distinguishing version number.

4.2.  Effect.  Once a particular version of Covered Code has been
provided under a version of the License, You may always continue to
use such Covered Code under the terms of that version of the License.
You may also choose to use such Covered Code under the terms of any
subsequent version of the License.  No one other than Original
Contributor has the right to promulgate License versions.

5.  Disclaimer of Warranty.

5.1.  COVERED CODE IS PROVIDED UNDER THIS LICENSE "AS IS," WITHOUT
WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT

of receipt of written notice of the breach; (ii) immediately in the
event of circumstances specified in Sections 7.1 and 8.4; or (iii) at
Original Contributor's discretion upon any action initiated in the

Corrections or Shared Modifications contributed by You, or
Specifications, infringe a patent owned or controlled by You.

6.3.  Effect of Termination.  Upon termination, You agree to
discontinue use and return or destroy all copies of Covered Code in
your possession.  All sublicenses to the Covered Code which you have
properly granted shall survive any termination of this License.

Contributor's prior written consent.

8.4.  Severability.  If any provision of this License is held to be
unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent

relief from a court of competent jurisdiction.  The arbitrator shall
have no authority to award damages in excess of those permitted in
this License and any such award in excess is void.  All awards will be
payable in U.S.  dollars and may include, for the prevailing party (i)
pre-judgment award interest, (ii) reasonable attorneys' fees incurred

agree to pass these obligations to Your licensees.

b) Intellectual Property Protection.  Due to limited intellectual
property protection and enforcement in certain countries, You agree
not to redistribute the Original Code, Upgraded Code, TCK and
Specifications to any country other than the list of restricted
countries on the SCSL Webpage.

other implementations of the Specification.  In consideration for the
license grant in Section 1.a above you agree not to develop your own
tests which are intended to validate conformation with the
Specification.

2.  Requirements for Determining Compliance.

2.1.  Definitions.

a) "Added Value" means code which:

	(i) has a principal purpose which is substantially different
	from that of the stand-alone Technology;

	(ii) represents a significant functional and value enhancement
	to the Technology;

	(iii) operates in conjunction with the Technology; and

	(iv) is not marketed as a technology which replaces or
	substitutes for the Technology.

b) "Java Classes" means the specific class libraries associated with
each Technology defined in Attachment B.

c) "Java Runtime Interpreter" means the program(s) which implement the
Java virtual machine for the Technology as defined in the
Specification.

d) "Platform Dependent Part" means those Original Code and Upgraded
Code files of the Technology which are not in a share directory or
subdirectory thereof.

e) "Shared Part" means those Original Code and Upgraded Code files of
the Technology which are identified as "shared" (or words of similar
meaning) or which are in any "share" directory or subdirectory
thereof, except those files specifically designated by Original
Contributor as modifiable.

f) "User's Guide" means the users guide for the TCK which Original
Contributor makes available to You to provide direction in how to run
the TCK and properly interpret the results, as may be revised by
Original Contributor from time to time.

2.2.  Development Restrictions.  Compliant Covered Code:

	a) must include Added Value;

	b) must fully comply with the Specifications for the
	Technology specified in Attachment B;

	c) must include the Shared Part, complete and unmodified;

	d) may not modify the functional behavior of the Java Runtime
	Interpreter or the Java Classes;

	e) may not modify, subset or superset the interfaces of the
	Java Runtime Interpreter or the Java Classes;

	f) may not subset or superset the Java Classes;

	g) may not modify or extend the required public class or
	public interface declarations whose names begin with "java",
	"javax", "jini", "net.jini", "sun.hotjava", "COM.sun" or their
	equivalents in any subsequent naming convention;

	h) Profiles.  The following provisions apply if You are
	licensing a Java Platform, Micro Edition Connected Device
	Configuration, Java Platform, Micro Edition Connected Limited
	Device Configuration and/or a Profile:

		(i) Profiles may not include an implementation of any
		part of a Profile or use any of the APIs within a
		Profile, unless You implement the Profile in its
		entirety in conformance with the applicable
		compatibility requirements and test suites as
		developed and licensed by Original Contributor or
		other authorized party.  "Profile" means: (A) for Java
		Platform, Micro Edition Connected Device
		Configuration, Foundation Profile, Personal Profile or
		such other profile as may be developed under or in
		connection with the Java Community Process or as
		otherwise authorized by Original Contributor; (B) for
		Java Platform, Micro Edition Connected Limited Device
		Configuration, Java Platform, Micro Edition, Mobile
		Information Device Profile or such other profile as
		may be developed under or in connection with the Java
		Community Process or as otherwise authorized by
		Original Contributor.  Notwithstanding the foregoing,
		nothing herein shall be construed as eliminating or
		modifying Your obligation to include Added Value as
		set forth in Section 2.2(a), above; and

		(ii) Profile(s) must be tightly integrated with, and
		must be configured to run in conjunction with, an
		implementation of a Configuration from Original
		Contributor (or an authorized third party) which meets
		Original Contributor's compatibility requirements.
		"Configuration" means, as defined in Original
		Contributor's compatibility requirements, either (A)
		Java Platform, Micro Edition Connected Device
		Configuration; or (B) Java Platform, Micro Edition
		Connected Limited Device Configuration.

		(iii) A Profile as integrated with a Configuration
		must pass the applicable TCK for the Technology.

2.3.  Compatibility Testing.  Successful compatibility testing must be
completed by You, or at Original Contributor's option, a third party
designated by Original Contributor to conduct such tests, in
accordance with the User's Guide.  A Technology must pass the
applicable TCK for the Technology.  You must use the most current
version of the applicable TCK available from Original Contributor one
hundred twenty (120) days (two hundred forty [240] days in the case of
silicon implementations) prior to: (i) Your Internal Deployment Use;
and (ii) each release of Compliant Covered Code by You for Commercial
Use.  In the event that You elect to use a version of Upgraded Code
that is newer than that which is required under this Section 2.3, then
You agree to pass the version of the TCK that corresponds to such
newer version of Upgraded Code.

2.4.  Test Results.  You agree to provide to Original Contributor or
the third party test facility if applicable, Your test results that
demonstrate that Covered Code is Compliant Covered Code and that
Original Contributor may publish or otherwise distribute such test
results.
