So I read that OpenJDK is under the GPLv2 with linking exception. What is a Classpath exception and a linking exception? The JDK that I'm using(Amazon Corretto which is a build of OpenJDK) is under the GPLv2 with Classpath exception. Are these 2 the same thing? Also, what is a assembly exception? Is OpenJDK fully covered by a classpath exception?

The first answer to this post confuses me What is a class path exception?
