Tapestry for distribution - Licensing concerns?

Web tier: servlets, JSP, Web frameworks: Tapestry for distribution - Licensing concerns?

  1. We are a startup company that is interested in writing our applications using the Tapestry framework. Does anyone know what the limitations are of bundling Tapestry with our commercial app?

    I notice Tapestry requires a couple of third party modules to run correctly. Does anyone know if those can be bundled too?

    How could anyone write applications in Tapestry if there are license distribution issues associated with it?

    Thanks for any feedback or experiences.
