It works with Apache2, and uses the AJP13 protocol like Tomcat.

Interesting. Just as I was thinking of creating a web app in D. What's the license? -- Michel Fortin michel.fortin michelf.com http://michelf.com/

I suggest Boost or zlib/libpng.

I realize there are legal subtleties in all these licenses. In your view, why is Boost better than BSD? Just curious.

Because with Boost you don't have to include the license when distributing a copy that is, as the license says, "machine-executable object code generated by a source language processor"

Hmm, forgot about that stuff, BSD maybe - suggest one please.

By looking at the code, I've found a license. Not sure which license it is (looks a little BSD-like), but at least the terms are clear.

BSD requires all copies (including binary code) to carry a copy of the licence (i.e. in an about box, product documentation, etc). The Boost or zlib/libpng licences don't require binary copies to carry a copy of the licence. D runtime / Phobos use a combination of Boost and zlib/libpng (mainly libpng). Commercial companies can have issues with the requirements of the BSD licence.
