OpenJDK Assembly Exception

The OpenJDK source code made available by Oracle America, Inc. (Oracle) at ("OpenJDK Code") is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License <> version 2 only ("GPL2"), with the following clarification and special exception.

As such, it allows licensees and sublicensees of Oracle's GPL2 OpenJDK Code to build an executable that includes those portions of necessary code that Oracle could not provide under GPL2 (or that Oracle has provided under GPL2 with the Classpath exception). If you modify or add to the OpenJDK code, that new GPL2 code may still be combined with Designated Exception Modules if the new code is made subject to this exception by its copyright holder.
