Many of J's icons are taken from the GNOME 2 Icon Project.
J uses and redistributes the gnu.regexp regular expression package, which is distributed under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License.
J uses and redistributes the BeanShell lightweight scripting package, which is also distributed under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License.
J uses (and, in versions prior to 0.19.0.2, redistributed) SAX 2.0, the Simple API for XML, and the SAX2-ext extension package. SAX 2.0 is in the public domain.
Versions of j prior to 0.19.0.2 included a version of the Ælfred XML parser, originally from Microstar, taken from the May 29 2000 release by David Brownell. Ælfred's package name has been changed to org.armedbear.j.aelfred to prevent any accidental confusion with either the original Microstar code or David Brownell's version. Only the XML parser and SAX driver are included in the j distribution.
Ælfred was orginally released by Microstar under the following license:

LICENSE The intent of this license is to establish freedom to share and change the software regulated by this license under the open source model, while preserving exclusive rights of the copyright holder to evolve the copyrighted interfaces. This license applies to any software containing a notice placed by the copyright holder saying that it may be distributed under the terms of this license. Such software is herein referred to as the Software. This license covers modification and distribution of the Software, use of third-party application programs based on the Software, and development of free software which uses the Software. 1. You are granted the non-exclusive rights set forth in this license provided you agree to and comply with any and all conditions in this license. Whole or partial distribution of the Software, or software items that link with the Software, in any form signifies acceptance of this license. 2. You may copy and distribute the Software in unmodified form provided that the entire package, including - but not restricted to - copyright, trademark notices and disclaimers, as released by the initial developer of the Software, is distributed. 3. You may make modifications to the Software and distribute your modifications, in a form that is separate from the Software, such as patches. The following restrictions apply to modifications: a. Modifications must not alter or remove any copyright, license, trademark, or other notices in the Software. b. When modifications to the Software are released under this license, a non-exclusive royalty-free right is granted to the initial developer of the Software to distribute all or part of your modification in future versions of the Software provided such versions remain available under these terms in addition to any other license(s) of the initial developer. c. If the interface to a Java-Compatible (tm) package in the Software has changed from the one defined by the copyright holder, the modification which is distributed must not use the package name defined by the copyright holder. A partial list of modifications which constitute such changes includes the addition or removal of generally visible symbols including public classes or interfaces, as well as their public or protected members; the copyright holder may provide alternative definitions applying to specific packages. Changes affecting the ability to pass such conformance tests as may be defined by the copyright holder always constitute interface changes. d. Modifications must be provided to the initial developer. 4. You may distribute machine-executable forms of the Software or machine-executable forms of modified versions of the Software, provided that you meet these restrictions: a. You must include this license document in the distribution. b. You must ensure that all recipients of the machine-executable forms are also able to receive the complete machine-readable source code to the distributed Software, including all modifications, without any charge beyond the costs of data transfer, and place prominent notices in the distribution explaining this. c. You must ensure that all modifications included in the machine-executable forms are available under the terms of this license. 5. You may use the original or modified versions of the Software to compile, link and run application programs legally developed by you or by others. 6. You may develop application programs, reusable components and other software items that link with the original or modified versions of the Software. These items, when distributed, are subject to the following requirements: a. You must ensure that all recipients of machine-executable forms of these items are also able to receive and use the complete machine-readable source code to the items without any charge beyond the costs of data transfer. b. You must explicitly license all recipients of your items to use and re-distribute original and modified versions of the items in both machine-executable and source code forms. The recipients must be able to do so without any charges whatsoever, and they must be able to re-distribute to anyone they choose. c. If the items are not available to the general public, and the initial developer of the Software requests a copy of the items, then you must supply one.
