56The j distribution includes a version of the &AElig;lfred XML parser,
57originally from <a href="http://www.microstar.com">Microstar</a>, taken from
58the May 29 2000 release of David Brownell's

60
61&AElig;lfred's package name has been changed to org.armedbear.j.aelfred to
62prevent any accidental confusion with either the original Microstar code or

83
84    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but
85    WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
86    merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.  Please use it AT
87    YOUR OWN RISK.

89David Brownell's software is distributed under the following license:
90<pre>
91    LICENSE
92
93    The intent of this license is to establish freedom to share and change
94    the software regulated by this license under the open source model, while
95    preserving exclusive rights of the copyright holder to evolve the
96    copyrighted interfaces.
97
98    This license applies to any software containing a notice placed by the
99    copyright holder saying that it may be distributed under the terms of this
100    license.  Such software is herein referred to as the Software.  This
101    license covers modification and distribution of the Software, use of
102    third-party application programs based on the Software, and development
103    of free software which uses the Software.
104
105    1. You are granted the non-exclusive rights set forth in this license
106       provided you agree to and comply with any and all conditions in this
107       license. Whole or partial distribution of the Software, or software
108       items that link with the Software, in any form signifies acceptance
109       of this license.
110
111    2. You may copy and distribute the Software in unmodified form provided
112       that the entire package, including - but not restricted to - copyright,
113       trademark notices and disclaimers, as released by the initial developer
114       of the Software, is distributed.
115
116    3. You may make modifications to the Software and distribute your
117       modifications, in a form that is separate from the Software, such as
118       patches. The following restrictions apply to modifications:
119
120        a. Modifications must not alter or remove any copyright, license,
121           trademark, or other notices in the Software.
122
123        b. When modifications to the Software are released under this license,
124           a non-exclusive royalty-free right is granted to the initial
125           developer of the Software to distribute all or part of your
126           modification in future versions of the Software provided such
127           versions remain available under these terms in addition to any other
128           license(s) of the initial developer.
129
130        c. If the interface to a Java-Compatible (tm) package in the Software has
131           changed from the one defined by the copyright holder, the modification
132           which is distributed must not use the package name defined by the
133           copyright holder.  A partial list of modifications which constitute
134           such changes includes the addition or removal of generally visible
135           symbols including public classes or interfaces, as well as their public
136           or protected members; the copyright holder may provide alternative
137           definitions applying to specific packages.  Changes affecting the
138           ability to pass such conformance tests as may be defined by the
139           copyright holder always constitute interface changes.
140
141        d. Modifications must be provided to the initial developer.
142
143    4. You may distribute machine-executable forms of the Software or
144       machine-executable forms of modified versions of the Software,
145       provided that you meet these restrictions:
146
147        a. You must include this license document in the distribution.
148
149        b. You must ensure that all recipients of the machine-executable forms
150           are also able to receive the complete machine-readable source code
151           to the distributed Software, including all modifications, without
152           any charge beyond the costs of data transfer, and place prominent
153           notices in the distribution explaining this.
154
155        c. You must ensure that all modifications included in the
156           machine-executable forms are available under the terms of
157           this license.
158
159    5. You may use the original or modified versions of the Software to
160       compile, link and run application programs legally developed by you
161       or by others.
162
163    6. You may develop application programs, reusable components and other
164       software items that link with the original or modified versions of the
165       Software. These items, when distributed, are subject to the following
166       requirements:
167
168        a. You must ensure that all recipients of machine-executable forms
169           of these items are also able to receive and use the complete
170           machine-readable source code to the items without any charge
171           beyond the costs of data transfer.
172
173        b. You must explicitly license all recipients of your items to use
174           and re-distribute original and modified versions of the items in
175           both machine-executable and source code forms.  The recipients
176           must be able to do so without any charges whatsoever, and they
177           must be able to re-distribute to anyone they choose.
178
179        c. If the items are not available to the general public, and the
180           initial developer of the Software requests a copy of the items,
181           then you must supply one.
182
183    IN NO EVENT SHALL THE COPYRIGHT HOLDER OR INITIAL DEVELOPER BE LIABLE FOR
184    ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL
185    DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS

187    HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT,
188    STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) ARISING IN
189    ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE OF THIS SOFTWARE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE
190    POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.
191
