We would like to create a web app that is accessed publicly. The code for Berkeley DB is not modified. the code for the web app will not be downloaded or shared with other groups,but is simply accessed in the standard client-server manner via a browser or REST client.
Can we use Berkeley DB JE open source for his purpose? I am specifically confused with what "redistribution" means (at that seems to be the crux of the issue here).
Berkeley DB docs says the following:
The term "redistribution" in the Open Source License means your application is distributed to one or more third parties. Giving an application to customers, even in alpha or beta releases, is redistribution. Giving contractors, affiliates, parent organizations or subsidiaries, business partners or support vendors a copy of the application is generally redistribution.
