this license is very pervasive in code from Sun/Oracle (glassfish, for
example). It appears as if they copied code from Apache
and then attached their headers to it, in some cases with very few
changes (or none) to the original apache files.
So basically, the original is ASLv2, then they added their dual
CCDLorGPLv2 (actually,according to the logs of the files we looked at
sun copied the files, then later remove the headers and replace them
with CCDLorGPLv2,a nd when they discovered the error
added to (I think) all the files the APLv2 to those files.

That sounds like a potentially interesting issue actually. Can you
inform of us of the specific package and the location of the source code?
