Yes you can do that. You can also find more info here: https://github.com/droolsjbpm/jbpm-designer/blob/master/jbpm-designer-standalone/src/main/resources/META-INF/LICENSE.
All source code of jBPM Designer can be located on github: https://github.com/droolsjbpm/jbpm-designer
I am new to jBPM and want to use jBPM as execution engine.We dont want to use jBPM designer .Would like to know under which licensing terms it come (APL of GPL ?)
The Licensefile was exactly what me made carefully.
I can read there:
* The license and the source files can be found in our SVN repository at:
And http://oryx-editor.googlecode.com points to GPLv3. So i am afraid from getting 3rd party GPL dependencies.
I could also find, that jbpm followed the instructions at oryx website to get an OEM-partnership with signavio. http://www.signavio.com/de/partner/oem-partner/
Entry from orxy website:
As the manpower of Hasso-Plattner-Institute has faded significantly over the past years, maintenance of the Oryx code is no longer guaranteed. Therefore, companies thinking about integrating a BPMN modeler into their own product are highly encouraged to rather go for OEM integrations with the Signavio code base.
I checked the oryx.js from jbpm-designer. It contains the following copyright. So i assume that this file was forked before the GPL was added.

[As far as I know,] the Oryx editor was originally MIT licensed. This codebase went through several big changes already, one of them being closer tied to Signavio (with Signavio core components and an academic initiative) and a license change to GPLv3. Note that we forked our version of the Oryx editor before the license change, so we are still using the old MIT license. The fact that the license file points to a URL, which has since then been updated, is confusing I admit.
Disclaimer: I tried to answer this to the best of my knowledge, but I'm not a legal expert.
