Developers (#1) - Feasable to borrow code? (#115) - Message List
Would it be feasible to borrow code from another Open Source email client?
Searching for BB email clients lead to LogicMail and: my.funambol.com . Am giving their 90 day trial a go and the email client is stated to be some form of Open software (www.forge.funambol.org). Only down side is the requirement to use a server and doesn't officially support wifi (still works though). Perhaps it is possible to use bits of the software, or take inspiration from .
Could I take inspiration from it? Sure. Can I use code from it? Not exactly. You see, according to the licensing page, Funambol uses a GPL-derived license. LogicMail uses a BSD-style license. What that essentially means is that Funambol can use LogicMail code, but not the reverse. (unless I change my license)
I do periodically wonder which is the better license for a project like this. But since I want this project to also be a large library of usable BlackBerry example code, going GPL would make my code unusable by any non-GPL project.octo06/24/10 17:08:17 (9 years ago)
Hello I am new and just downloaded logic mail, and I am trying to set it up but I am not getting the setup page instructions because I am not familiar with setting up this type program. My problem is I don't know the information I should put in to set it up, my phone is 8350i blackberry, could someone please send me step by step instructions as to how to do this, please.
