openSEAL: Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What does the library cost?
The openSEAL source code is freely distributable under the EPL license
and costs nothing. Do what you want with it.
Q: What is the motivation for this project?
Actually, the idea came about because we're a bunch of old Java
developers who ended up doing Microsoft work for several years.
We had become accustomed to working with certain design pattterns
such as Model-View-Controller (MVC) in Struts
that we felt we could migrate to .NET. While we found certain things
we were accustomed to like log4net and Nant, we felt there was still
some work to be done before we felt comfortable in our new environment.
While we're still Java developers at heart, we do certainly love
some of the nice shiny features of the CLI and the .NET languages
(well MC++ and C# anyway) and feel that the library is incredibly
valuable making use of some of the benefits of the .NET framework
that don't have analogies in the Java universe.
