    I was poking around at webOS SDK and webOS Doctor, and came upon the source code for Novacom in one of the JAR files. The archive in question if from SDK 3.0.5 build 676 x86, PDK. It is the Device Explorer, and comes with full source code for both the Device Explorer app and Novacom Java interface. In fact, there's a corresponding Java source for every compiled class.

    Hypothetical question: If I was to make my own device explorer in C#, what license would it be after seeing this source? I think HP doesn't do a good job of checking their packages for leaks. I saw one JAR had .svn folders all over, so it seemed they just pulled stuff from SVN and zipped it up.

    Reading through the SDK license agreement, I would say the code follows under "Palm Materials" and per section 3.7(a) cannot be modified, adapted or redistributed except as allowed under internal use per section 3.2(a).

    Right. But the entire novacom system itself is available now, so it should be possible to adapt things based on that.
