JDBC Manager License
JDBC Manager is released under Open Source License.

Basically it says that you can use this software, distribute it, and even you can modify it, but you have to apply Open Source License to the modifications.
In other words: if you use my job, then your job is also Open Source and you can not sell it.

Any case, please read carefully the license:

The Open Software License 
v. 1.1

This Open Software License (the "License") applies to any 
original work of authorship (the "Original Work") whose 
owner (the "Licensor") has placed the following notice 
immediately following the copyright notice for the Original Work: 

Licensed under the Open Software License version 1.1

1) Grant of Copyright License. Licensor hereby grants You a world-wide, 
   royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual, non-sublicenseable license 
   to do the following: 

   a) to reproduce the Original Work in copies; 

   b) to prepare derivative works ("Derivative Works") based 
      upon the Original Work; 

   c) to distribute copies of the Original Work and Derivative Works 
      to the public, with the proviso that copies of Original Work or 
      Derivative Works that You distribute shall be licensed under the 
      Open Software License; 

   d) to perform the Original Work publicly; and 

   e) to display the Original Work publicly. 


2) Grant of Patent License. Licensor hereby grants You a world-wide, 
   royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual, non-sublicenseable license, 
   under patent claims owned or controlled by the Licensor that are 
   embodied in the Original Work as furnished by the Licensor 
   ("Licensed Claims") to make, use, sell and offer for sale 
   the Original Work. Licensor hereby grants You a world-wide, 
   royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual, non-sublicenseable license 
   under the Licensed Claims to make, use, sell and offer for sale 
   Derivative Works. 


3) Grant of Source Code License. The term "Source Code" means
   the preferred form of the Original Work for making modifications to 
   it and all available documentation describing how to modify the 
   Original Work. Licensor hereby agrees to provide a machine-readable 
   copy of the Source Code of the Original Work along with each copy of 
   the Original Work that Licensor distributes. Licensor reserves the 
   right to satisfy this obligation by placing a machine-readable copy 
   of the Source Code in an information repository reasonably 
   calculated to permit inexpensive and convenient access by You for as 
   long as Licensor continues to distribute the Original Work, and by 
   publishing the address of that information repository in a notice 
   immediately following the copyright notice that applies to the 
   Original Work. 


4) Exclusions From License Grant. Nothing in this License shall be 
   deemed to grant any rights to trademarks, copyrights, patents, trade 
   secrets or any other intellectual property of Licensor except as 
   expressly stated herein. No patent license is granted to make, use, 
   sell or offer to sell embodiments of any patent claims other than the 
   Licensed Claims defined in Section 2. No right is granted to the 
   trademarks of Licensor even if such marks are included in the Original 
   Work. Nothing in this License shall be interpreted to prohibit Licensor 
   from licensing under different terms from this License any Original 
   Work that Licensor otherwise would have a right to license. 

5) External Deployment. The term "External Deployment" means 
   the use or distribution of the Original Work or Derivative Works in 
   any way such that the Original Work or Derivative Works may be used 
   by anyone other than You, whether the Original Work or Derivative 
   Works are distributed to those persons or made available as an 
   application intended for use over a computer network. As an express 
   condition for the grants of license hereunder, You agree that any 
   External Deployment by You of a Derivative Work shall be deemed a 
   distribution and shall be licensed to all under the terms of this 
   License, as prescribed in section 1(c) herein. 

6) Attribution Rights. You must retain, in the Source Code of any 
   Derivative Works that You create, all copyright, patent or trademark 
   notices from the Source Code of the Original Work, as well as any 
   notices of licensing and any descriptive text identified therein as an 
   "Attribution Notice." You must cause the Source Code for any 
   Derivative Works that You create to carry a prominent Attribution 
   Notice reasonably calculated to inform recipients that You have 
   modified the Original Work. 

7) Warranty and Disclaimer of Warranty. Licensor warrants that the copyright 
   in and to the Original Work is owned by the Licensor or that the Original 
   Work is distributed by Licensor under a valid current license from the 
   copyright owner. Except as expressly stated in the immediately proceeding 
   sentence, the Original Work is provided under this License on an "AS IS" 
   BASIS and WITHOUT WARRANTY, either express or implied, including, without 
   limitation, the warranties of NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS 
   FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY OF THE 
   ORIGINAL WORK IS WITH YOU. This DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY constitutes an 
   essential part of this License. No license to Original Work is granted 
   hereunder except under this disclaimer. 


8) Limitation of Liability. Under no circumstances and under no legal theory, 
   whether in tort (including negligence), contract, or otherwise, shall the 
   Licensor be liable to any person for any direct, indirect, special, 
   incidental, or consequential damages of any character arising as a result 
   of this License or the use of the Original Work including, without 
   limitation, damages for loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure 
   or malfunction, or any and all other commercial damages or losses. This 
   limitation of liability shall not apply to liability for death or 
   personal injury resulting from Licensor's negligence to the extent 
   applicable law prohibits such limitation. Some jurisdictions do not allow 
   the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so 
   this exclusion and limitation may not apply to You. 


9) Acceptance and Termination. If You distribute copies of the Original Work
   or a Derivative Work, You must make a reasonable effort under the 
   circumstances to obtain the express and volitional assent of recipients 
   to the terms of this License. Nothing else but this License (or another 
   written agreement between Licensor and You) grants You permission to 
   create Derivative Works based upon the Original Work or to exercise any 
   of the rights granted in Sections 1 herein, and any attempt to do so 
   except under the terms of this License (or another written agreement 
   between Licensor and You) is expressly prohibited by U.S. copyright law, 
   the equivalent laws of other countries, and by international treaty. 
   Therefore, by exercising any of the rights granted to You in Sections 1 
   herein, You indicate Your acceptance of this License and all of its 
   terms and conditions. This License shall terminate immediately and you 
   may no longer exercise any of the rights granted to You by this 
   License upon Your failure to honor the proviso in Section 1(c) herein. 


10) Mutual Termination for Patent Action. This License shall terminate 
    automatically and You may no longer exercise any of the rights granted to 
    You by this License if You file a lawsuit in any court alleging that any 
    OSI Certified open source software that is licensed under any license 
    containing this "Mutual Termination for Patent Action" clause 
    infringes any patent claims that are essential to use that software. 


11) Jurisdiction, Venue and Governing Law. Any action or suit relating to 
    this License may be brought only in the courts of a jurisdiction wherein 
    the Licensor resides or in which Licensor conducts its primary business, 
    and under the laws of that jurisdiction excluding its conflict-of-law 
    provisions. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts 
    for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. Any use of the 
    Original Work outside the scope of this License or after its termination 
    shall be subject to the requirements and penalties of the U.S. Copyright 
    Act, 17 U.S.C.  101 et seq., the equivalent laws of other countries, and 
    international treaty. This section shall survive the termination of this 
    License. 


12) Attorneys Fees. In any action to enforce the terms of this License or 
    seeking damages relating thereto, the prevailing party shall be 
    entitled to recover its costs and expenses, including, without 
    limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and costs incurred in 
    connection with such action, including any appeal of such action. 
    This section shall survive the termination of this License. 


13) Miscellaneous. This License represents the complete agreement concerning 
    the subject matter hereof. If any provision of this License is held to be 
    unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent 
    necessary to make it enforceable. 


14) Definition of "You" in This License. "You" throughout 
    this License, whether in upper or lower case, means an individual or a 
    legal entity exercising rights under, and complying with all of the terms 
    of, this License. For legal entities, "You" includes any entity 
    that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with you. For 
    purposes of this definition, "control" means (i) the power, 
    direct or indirect, to cause the direction or management of such entity, 
    whether by contract or otherwise, or (ii) ownership of fifty percent (50%) 
    or more of the outstanding shares, or (iii) beneficial ownership of such 
    entity. 


15) Right to Use. You may use the Original Work in all ways not otherwise 
    restricted or conditioned by this License or by law, and Licensor promises 
    not to interfere with or be responsible for such uses by You.
