msbase.jar, mssqlserver.jar, and msutil.jar


What is the license on the following three JAR files ?

 
http://cvs.forge.objectweb.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/jorm/jorm/externals/jdbc/msbase.jar
 
http://cvs.forge.objectweb.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/jorm/jorm/externals/jdbc/mssqlserver.jar
 
http://cvs.forge.objectweb.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/jorm/jorm/externals/jdbc/msutil.jar

If you go to the Microsoft site and search for

  
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/results.aspx?displaylang=en&freeText=SQL+Server+Driver+JDBC

you'll find that all of the available versions of these files come
with a End-User License Agreement that explicitly prohibits their
redistribution.

    Microsoft SQL Server(TM) 2000 Driver for JDBC(TM)
    Redistribution Guidelines

    The Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Driver for JDBC was released on May
    1, 2002 and is available for download via
    http://www.microsoft.com/sql/downloads.

    It is available at no charge to all licensed SQL Server customers
    subject to terms and conditions listed in the End-User License
    Agreement (EULA) that accompanies the download.

    As stated in the EULA, users may download the driver from
    designated sites but may not redistribute in any form. As such,
    ISVs who build application that uses this driver and need to
    deploy them to customers have at least three options available:

    1. Provide the customer with the relevant download information and
       instructions so that the customer may download and install the
       driver on their own as part of the installation process.

    2. Include the download task as part of the ISV's
       installation/deployment process to be performed with the
       customer at the customer's location.

    3. Provide a component with the ISV's setup/installation program
       that will automatically:

        i. Check for presence of internet connection
       ii. If connection is available, launch the browser directly to
           the driver's download site so that the customer may then
           complete the download as part of the installation process



In view of the above, these jar files should be removed from the JORM
CVS repository.
