Here's an excerpt:

Rick Scaletta, group manager of J2EE licensing at Sun, acknowledged that Sun so far has only offered the revised licensing scheme to JBoss?for licensing the compatibility test suite for the upcoming next version of J2EE, known as J2EE 1.4. However, JBoss is balking at the deal, and Sun is making noise about it. The JBoss Group develops and maintains the open-source JBoss Java application server.

What do you think of SUN's new amended licensing?
