I have a question about the GPL licence concerning the Java written software.
I have the following situation:
I wrote a software pakaged in jar, war, and etc files that use GPL licensed third party libraries. I want to sell my software - my peace only and of course I have to bundle it with the GPL-ed software in order to make it work on the client machine.
In order to let the customer use newer versions of the free software he does not need my sources.
My questin is:
Can I sell the product that uses GPLed third party packages without selling or providing the source code?
Do I breake the GPL license ?
What about Lesser GPL - can it somehow limit me to sell the product?
I already read some parts of the GPL and LGPL but I am confused a bit.
Thanks in advance !
