+
+ THE ACCOMPANYING PROGRAM IS PROVIDED UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS ECLIPSE PUBLIC
+ LICENSE ("AGREEMENT"). ANY USE, REPRODUCTION OR DISTRIBUTION OF THE PROGRAM
+ CONSTITUTES RECIPIENT'S ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT.
+
+ 1. DEFINITIONS
+
+ "Contribution" means:
+
+ a) in the case of the initial Contributor, the initial code and
+ documentation distributed under this Agreement, and
+
+ b) in the case of each subsequent Contributor:
+
+ i) changes to the Program, and
+
+ ii) additions to the Program;
+
+ where such changes and/or additions to the Program originate from and are
+distributed by that particular Contributor. A Contribution 'originates' from a
+Contributor if it was added to the Program by such Contributor itself or
+anyone acting on such Contributor's behalf. Contributions do not include
+additions to the Program which: (i) are separate modules of software
+distributed in conjunction with the Program under their own license agreement,
+and (ii) are not derivative works of the Program.
+
+ "Contributor" means any person or entity that distributes the Program.
+
+ "Licensed Patents " mean patent claims licensable by a Contributor which are
+necessarily infringed by the use or sale of its Contribution alone or when
+combined with the Program.
+
+ "Program" means the Contributions distributed in accordance with this
+Agreement.
+
+ "Recipient" means anyone who receives the Program under this Agreement,
+including all Contributors.
+
+ 2. GRANT OF RIGHTS
+
+ a) Subject to the terms of this Agreement, each Contributor hereby grants
+ Recipient a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free copyright license to
+ reproduce, prepare derivative works of, publicly display, publicly
+ perform, distribute and sublicense the Contribution of such Contributor,
+ if any, and such derivative works, in source code and object code form.
+
+ b) Subject to the terms of this Agreement, each Contributor hereby grants
+ Recipient a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free patent license under
+ Licensed Patents to make, use, sell, offer to sell, import and otherwise
+ transfer the Contribution of such Contributor, if any, in source code and
+ object code form. This patent license shall apply to the combination of
+ the Contribution and the Program if, at the time the Contribution is added
+ by the Contributor, such addition of the Contribution causes such
+ combination to be covered by the Licensed Patents. The patent license
+ shall not apply to any other combinations which include the Contribution.
+ No hardware per se is licensed hereunder.
+
+ c) Recipient understands that although each Contributor grants the
+ licenses to its Contributions set forth herein, no assurances are provided
+ by any Contributor that the Program does not infringe the patent or other
+ intellectual property rights of any other entity. Each Contributor
+ disclaims any liability to Recipient for claims brought by any other
+ entity based on infringement of intellectual property rights or otherwise.
+ As a condition to exercising the rights and licenses granted hereunder,
+ each Recipient hereby assumes sole responsibility to secure any other
+ intellectual property rights needed, if any. For example, if a third party
+ patent license is required to allow Recipient to distribute the Program,
+ it is Recipient's responsibility to acquire that license before
+ distributing the Program.
+
+ d) Each Contributor represents that to its knowledge it has sufficient
+ copyright rights in its Contribution, if any, to grant the copyright
+ license set forth in this Agreement.
+
+ 3. REQUIREMENTS
+
+ A Contributor may choose to distribute the Program in object code form under
+its own license agreement, provided that:
+
+ a) it complies with the terms and conditions of this Agreement; and
+
+ b) its license agreement:
+
+ i) effectively disclaims on behalf of all Contributors all warranties
+ and conditions, express and implied, including warranties or conditions
+ of title and non-infringement, and implied warranties or conditions of
+ merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose;
+
+ ii) effectively excludes on behalf of all Contributors all liability for
+ damages, including direct, indirect, special, incidental and
+ consequential damages, such as lost profits;
+
+ iii) states that any provisions which differ from this Agreement are
+ offered by that Contributor alone and not by any other party; and
+
+ iv) states that source code for the Program is available from such
+ Contributor, and informs licensees how to obtain it in a reasonable
+ manner on or through a medium customarily used for software exchange.
+
+ When the Program is made available in source code form:
+
+ a) it must be made available under this Agreement; and
+
+ b) a copy of this Agreement must be included with each copy of the Program.
+
+ Contributors may not remove or alter any copyright notices contained within
+the Program.
+
+ Each Contributor must identify itself as the originator of its Contribution,
+if any, in a manner that reasonably allows subsequent Recipients to identify
+the originator of the Contribution.
+
+ 4. COMMERCIAL DISTRIBUTION
+
+ Commercial distributors of software may accept certain responsibilities with
+respect to end users, business partners and the like. While this license is
+intended to facilitate the commercial use of the Program, the Contributor who
+includes the Program in a commercial product offering should do so in a manner
+which does not create potential liability for other Contributors. Therefore,
+if a Contributor includes the Program in a commercial product offering, such
+Contributor ("Commercial Contributor") hereby agrees to defend and indemnify
+every other Contributor ("Indemnified Contributor") against any losses,
+damages and costs (collectively "Losses") arising from claims, lawsuits and
+other legal actions brought by a third party against the Indemnified
+Contributor to the extent caused by the acts or omissions of such Commercial
+Contributor in connection with its distribution of the Program in a commercial
+product offering. The obligations in this section do not apply to any claims
+or Losses relating to any actual or alleged intellectual property
+infringement. In order to qualify, an Indemnified Contributor must:
+a) promptly notify the Commercial Contributor in writing of such claim, and
+b) allow the Commercial Contributor to control, and cooperate with the
+Commercial Contributor in, the defense and any related settlement
+negotiations. The Indemnified Contributor may participate in any such claim at
+its own expense.
+
+ For example, a Contributor might include the Program in a commercial product
+offering, Product X. That Contributor is then a Commercial Contributor. If
+that Commercial Contributor then makes performance claims, or offers
+warranties related to Product X, those performance claims and warranties are
+such Commercial Contributor's responsibility alone. Under this section, the
+Commercial Contributor would have to defend claims against the other
+Contributors related to those performance claims and warranties, and if a
+court requires any other Contributor to pay any damages as a result, the
+Commercial Contributor must pay those damages.
+
+ 5. NO WARRANTY
+
+ EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE PROGRAM IS PROVIDED ON
+AN "AS IS" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS
+OR IMPLIED INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF
+TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
+Each Recipient is solely responsible for determining the appropriateness of
+using and distributing the Program and assumes all risks associated with its
+exercise of rights under this Agreement , including but not limited to the
+risks and costs of program errors, compliance with applicable laws, damage to
+or loss of data, programs or equipment, and unavailability or interruption of
+operations.
+
+ 6. DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY
+
+ EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, NEITHER RECIPIENT NOR ANY
+CONTRIBUTORS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL,
+SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION
+LOST PROFITS), HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER IN
+CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE)
+ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE OR DISTRIBUTION OF THE PROGRAM OR THE
+EXERCISE OF ANY RIGHTS GRANTED HEREUNDER, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY
+OF SUCH DAMAGES.
+
+ 7. GENERAL
+
+ If any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable under
+applicable law, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the
+remainder of the terms of this Agreement, and without further action by the
+parties hereto, such provision shall be reformed to the minimum extent
+necessary to make such provision valid and enforceable.
+
+ If Recipient institutes patent litigation against any entity (including a
+cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that the Program itself
+(excluding combinations of the Program with other software or hardware)
+infringes such Recipient's patent(s), then such Recipient's rights granted
+under Section 2(b) shall terminate as of the date such litigation is filed.
+
+ All Recipient's rights under this Agreement shall terminate if it fails to
+comply with any of the material terms or conditions of this Agreement and does
+not cure such failure in a reasonable period of time after becoming aware of
+such noncompliance. If all Recipient's rights under this Agreement terminate,
+Recipient agrees to cease use and distribution of the Program as soon as
+reasonably practicable. However, Recipient's obligations under this Agreement
+and any licenses granted by Recipient relating to the Program shall continue
+and survive.
+
+ Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute copies of this Agreement, but
+in order to avoid inconsistency the Agreement is copyrighted and may only be
+modified in the following manner. The Agreement Steward reserves the right to
+publish new versions (including revisions) of this Agreement from time to
+time. No one other than the Agreement Steward has the right to modify this
+Agreement. The Eclipse Foundation is the initial Agreement Steward. The
+Eclipse Foundation may assign the responsibility to serve as the Agreement
+Steward to a suitable separate entity. Each new version of the Agreement will
+be given a distinguishing version number. The Program (including
+Contributions) may always be distributed subject to the version of the
+Agreement under which it was received. In addition, after a new version of
+the Agreement is published, Contributor may elect to distribute the Program
+(including its Contributions) under the new version. Except as expressly
+stated in Sections 2(a) and 2(b) above, Recipient receives no rights or
+licenses to the intellectual property of any Contributor under this Agreement,
+whether expressly, by implication, estoppel or otherwise. All rights in the
+Program not expressly granted under this Agreement are reserved.
+
+ This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of New York and the
+intellectual property laws of the United States of America. No party to this
+Agreement will bring a legal action under this Agreement more than one year
+after the cause of action arose. Each party waives its rights to a jury trial
+in any resulting litigation.
