Well, the author used to release it under the LGPL but
when he moved the project to Jakarta he changed the
license. You should ask Enver (the author) for more
information on what's possible and what not.

they are online now: 

I didn't have my BCEL Verifier script sort out the
non-class files, so there are a few obvious rejects
for files which are not class files ;) I'll post a
short FAQ.bcelverifier as sonn as I get around to
write it, explaining how you can verify the class
library yourself. That should help get the number of
compiler related problems down.
