XDocReport code is license under MIT license but the samples are licensed under LGPL license, this is why.
Because we love to share our code, we prefer a very weak license. That's why we choose MIT License for our core modules.
MIT License is called a weak license which allow redistribution and modification (Although we appreciate contributions).
Issue with iText based PDF converter
iText is a very powerful Java library for creating PDF. Our iText based converter is by far the best PDF converter that we provide. iText 2.1.7 comes with a LGPL license which is not compliant with our MIT License.
Thus, people that would use and redistribute xdocreport with iText based converter will have to comply with the LGPL license. This is exactly what we do with our XDocReport Samples.
