jPOS.org releases the jPOS and jPOS-EE software technologies under the AGPLv3 license (GNU Affero General Public License version3) and bases its development under the “Quid Pro Quo” principle. In return for the advantages you realize from using jPOS and jPOS-EE you are either required to release your application code back to the community under the AGPLv3 license or to contribute to the continued development of jPOS and jPOS-EE by purchasing a commercial license.
If you are creating a jPOS or jPOS-EE based proprietary application and you are not prepared to distribute and share the source code under the AGPLv3 license Transactility can sell you a commercial license that will no longer obligate you to release your source code.
The AGPLv3 license includes the “network services” distribution concept and a jPOS-based application that provides services through a network shall also be covered by the AGPLv3 license. If you have questions regarding you obligations under the AGPLv3 license please contact us. You can learn more about the AGPL 3 license at the Free Software Foundation website.
