You should work with the Legal team.  Background: when I had approached
our legal advisors (pre-Legal team) regarding the FOSS exception, I was
told (I can probably dig up the original e-mails if necessary) that it was
not sufficient, and thus we could not ship the GPL MySQL JDBC driver.

What good is ClusterJ without that last bit?

To be clear, I'm interested, just concerned about the licensing issues.
