The DSpace SOLR Statistics engine is currently performing CSV processing using a GPL-Licensed dependency (Ostermiller Java Utilities). This has gone unnoticed since DSpace 1.6.
The following files reference/use this dependency:
We need to refactor that dependency out and replace it with a dependency which is compatible with our BSD License.
Possible replacements include:
- OpenCSV (http://opencsv.sourceforge.net/), Apache 2 License
- Apache Commons CSV (http://commons.apache.org/csv/), Apache 2 License
It is preferable to use OpenCSV, as that dependency is also used by the Batch Metadata Editing functions in DSpace.
