I would like to implement some Java-beans specific functionality
into a GTK project I am writing in C#. Basically, I want to make
interfaces/classes that mimic the functionality of Bean-specific
stuff like PropertyChangeListener, ActionListener etc.
It is really not much coding or complex at all, and I will _not_ be
looking at the Java sourcecode for this, and the only things I am
thinking of _copying_ are the names of the of the methods and
interfaces/classes in question.
However, would doing this cause me to have any obligations under
the GPL, ASL or other applicable license for the Java classes? I am
guessing functionality is not copyrightable, but what about names
of classes etc?
Sorry if this is not overly related to Fedora, but I have gotten
many good answers on this list, and I was hoping somebody could
help me out with this little concern.
