About licensing

Jan 15, 2013 at 2:06 PM


I've been using nhydrate and am looking at integrating with a workflow project I'm working on. 

This workflow project might evolve to a commercial offering (meaning customers might pay to use it).

I would like to know what licensing applies in order to embed the nhydrate code generation functionality.

Inside the generated code files there are some copyright notes (from nhydrate.org) that seem very strict on how the code files can be used.

On the other hand the codeplex license does not imply any restrictions.

My question towards the project owners is : 
Can i freely use this project in a commercial product?This product is not a model generation tool but is more of a superset that just uses the code generation features of nhydrate.I would prefer to use nhydrate rather than plain old EF (Through t4 templates) to generate my data access code.

thanks in advance

i am sorry for the confusion. The copyright in all files has been changed to match the MIT license on CodePlex. Of course you can use your generated applications in commercial applications. The changed copyright notice is already checked in.
