This is great news! I had a strong fear you would follow the
closed-source mentality that is all-too-common in amateur radio circles.

At least according to http://javahelp.java.net/ (at the bottom of the
page), JavaHelp is GPLv2 licensed.

I'm already very eager to try out your application! Please set up a
source code repository (github would be great) as soon as you have
figured out the licensing issues!
