Does the GPL force me to release my own code if I run it on dm Server
I read the faq http://www.springsource.com/products...r/licensingfaq.
But one think I do not understand.
If my customer installs dm Server itself, do I have to release my dm Server application (which I have developed myself) under GPL?

As the licensing FAQ explains, you are only required to release software under the GPL if you "convey" the software and you modify the software or create a “derivative work” of it. You'll need to seek legal advice if you need interpretation of the GPL.
