risks using open source
Risks Using Open Source
  • Can we really use open source software as freely as we want in software development?
  • Are you aware of the risk?
    • PHP license is incompatible to GPL license

 source code under PHP license cannot import source code under GPL license and vice versa.

  • Do we really need to read each of the open source licenses to avoid legal problems? Do we have time for it?
benefit from oslc 2 0
Benefit from OSLC 2.0!
  • To Identify existing open source licenses
  • To select OS software for development
  • To avoid legal problems and law suit
  • To manage software package with multiple OS licenses
  • To support decision making for OS software license
  • Work more efficiently:

 To save managers’ and engineers’ time from going into details in the source package

 Managers and engineers do not have to be open source license expert

oslc 2 0 features and demo
OSLC 2.0 Features and Demo
  • Identify license from OS source files/directories/packages
  • Identifying open source licenses from:
    • Java, PHP, and C/C++ source files
    • Linux kernel source files
    • “LICENCE” files
    • “COPYING” files
  • Indicating the license matching confidence against the original license text
  • Highlighting the matched license text
  • Displaying source code import references
  • Link to import files (only in Java)
  • Displaying the license conflicts
  • Identifying license exceptions & forbidden phrases
  • Source file print support
  • General summary and report on the source files in the package
  • File filtering in source package based on different criteria.
  • Support both GUI interface and Command line interface
license issue and reference
License Issue and Reference
  • Under GPL 2.0 license
  • Released in Sourceforge.net:
    • www.sourceforge.net/projects/oslc
  • Marketing material in Groklaw
  • Industrial companies have high interests in this software
  • Welcome to
    • Make suggestions and comments!
    • Try out our application and spread the word 
    • Join us in further development

project goals

Original Goals

Status

Realization

Business Goals

To build a basic tool for analyzing open source software license

OK

The system is implemented with powerful features and algorithms to support analysis for open source software licenses. Currently we are using different algorithms to identify the license type and 28 open source licenses registered into the application license database.

To provide a software with production level of quality (beta release)

OK

The software is currently released in sourceforge as Beta release. All the OSSI project customers are informed about this software and they are very interested to use it.

The application is designed with usability concept in mind

OK

The system is designed with a user-friendly interface. The usage of the application is very straight forward. Normal user should be able to master it after 30 minutes.

Functionality Goals

To analyze the license found from files in an open source package

OK

The software supports license analysis functionality in a single file, directory, and compressed source file packages (zip, jar, tar.gz, tar, and tgz). It also can identify license information from e.g. “License.txt” and “Copying.txt” files.

To be easy to integrate with different development environment e.g. CVS

Dropped

This feature is decided to be dropped off. The decision was affected by additional high priority feature requests from customer. In addition, the project resource availability also slightly affected the decision as we must focus on the higher priority features and drop the low ones.

To make positive and negative identification of licenses

OK

The software identifies licenses based on licenses storied in the database provided by the customer.

To offer command line option for making report (filename+ license)

OK

The software can create license report of a software package in command line. In addition, it is able to identify the file references in the package.

To visualize the content of the software package and show file linking relations

OK

-The summary pane shows the overall information of the software package.

-The file reference is shown in the GUI.

-It is able to locate to the target reference file in Java.

-Identification of the license information and the license conflicts within the package and display it in the GUI

Project Goals
project schedule and progress
Project Schedule and progress
  • Agile development embracing changes
  • Iterative development with 2 week sub-iteration development
  • Frequent delivery and demonstration for customer review and feedback
  • All development work on schedule with extra features

Resource Usage

Original resource plan

Resource Realization

(left hours and extra hours)

 GUI work is complex and time-consuming.

  • Implementation is more complicated than expected (License recognition algorithm & source file parsing)

 Additional work spent on project marketing

 Changes and extra features for application

Jussi had to travel abroad for special reasons thus he was not available for some weeks

 This affected the project task assignment a bit; however we adjust the plan to fit to the new situation.

project quality summary
Project Quality Summary

OSLC 2.0 is robust and produces reliable analysis result

 It is mature enough as a stable release in Sourceforge and for production use.
