Isn't C++ proprietary? If so, why isn't LO using a FOSS coding platform instead?

2018-10-29 00:11:48 +0100 Als beste Antwort markiert Oracle changing java license

UPDATE: @hjek and @Mike Kaganski, my apologies for not answering sooner. It's been hectic and I frankly forgot about this question until recently. I wound up removing Oracle and replacing it with OpenJDK (which I now find both of you reference). LO Base with Firebird seems to open and run just fine based solely on a quick test.

BTW, @hjek, I'm using LO with both Windows and Linux operating systems. I have a particular 3rd-party app that seemed to require Java 8 and the way I read the Oracle license posting it seemed to indicate that Java 8 and subsequent versions would eventually require a commercial license for "business, commercial, or production use."

To me, the whole idea of FLOSS software is to avoid licenses such as the one provided by Oracle, so I was trying to determine my path for the future.

I noticed, @Mike Kaganski, your observation that LO Base should run without Oracle or OpenJDK. I knew TDF was working to remove old Java code from LO, but I thought for now you still had to select a JRE to use LO Base in particular. I'll check that out when I get a chance.

Thanks to both of you for your replies and insight. I would love to give both of you the check mark, but since I can't, I upvoted your answers. I gave @Mike Kaganski the check mark because I believe his answer was more closely aligned to the specific concerns I expressed in my question.

====================

I was recently prompted to update Java on my machine. During the process, I was notified that Oracle is changing the Java license.

I didn't see specific definitions for the terms "home use" and "commercial use" -- but it appears Oracle may be about to start charging for commercial use of Java. I just did a little research and found this InfoWorld post and this Java Licensing FAQs page from Oracle.

Based on what I read, I believe a commercial Java license will only be needed if you distribute Java with your product to a third party. In other words, you can distribute a LO Calc or Base application as it runs on your machine and require any third-party recipient of your work to have their own copy of LO and Java -- you just can't distribute your work to a third party in any form that requires distribution of Java as well. (See my questions below.)

Three questions:

  1. Has anyone else seen this notice?
  2. Am I interpreting the Java license FAQs correctly concerning commercial use?
  3. Has The Documents Foundation released any timetable for total removal of Java from LibreOffice?

2017-12-14 10:03:43 +0100 Als beste Antwort markiert Bug in LO Calc and VBA?

I think I have found a bug in certain cell formulas produced by VBA Script. So far, I have been met with Err:508 and #Name? errors. Please let me elaborate:

OS: Win 7 (x64) & Linux Mint (x64)
Ver: LO 5.3.6.x (x64) or LO 5.3.7.x (x64) (I have updated to 5.3.7.2 and the errors still occur)

I am building a CPE course where I plan to show my students how LibreOffice Calc can use code from multiple languages. I already have a working application in Excel 2007, and the same application in Google Sheets. I plan to create a counterpart in LO Basic, but I also want to show that LO Calc can use code from VBA and JavaScript.

I found an error when working with the VBA code. After opening the Excel worksheet containing the VBA macro and saving to ods format, I tried to run the script. The macro executed once I rem'd out the "Sheet1.Activate" line of code.

The macro works fine in Excel 2007, but I was met with "Err:508" in numerous cells when attempting to run it in LO Calc. There is nothing wrong with the offending cells. In fact, you can edit any of the offending cells and make ANY editing change and the cell will display properly. For instance, edit an offending cell, delete the last parenthesis, and hit "Enter." The final parenthesis will be added back and the formula will now work -- along with any other cells dependent upon that particular cell.

After further research, I created a separate worksheet that further isolates the problem. In this worksheet, I try several tests. Cells with just numbers or numbers and operators work fine. The SUM function also seems to work fine.

HOWEVER, the ROUND function now displays "#NAME?" (as opposed to "Err:508" in the original worksheet). In either the original worksheet or the new abbreviated test worksheet, any manual modification to the offending cell (such as described above) will correct the problem.

I have attached a file. Open the worksheet, click the "TEST" button, and a description of the formula will appear in column A, along with the actual formula and results in column C.

C:\fakepath\BUG_TEST.ods

I have not yet tried to convert the Google Sheet to ods format, so I do not know if JavaScript will produce the same error.

Has anyone else noticed this problem? Is this a bug, or am I missing something?

All help is appreciated.
