[jdom-interest] JDOM license agreement question;

"JDOM is available under an Apache-style open source license, with the acknowledgment clause removed. This license is among the least restrictive license available, enabling developers to use JDOM in creating new products without requiring them to release their own products as open source. This is the license model used by the Apache Project, which created the Apache server."

 What does this exactly mean?  I know not too long ago there was a discussion about this but I never found a ONE SOLID ANSWER. Here's my situation :

Writing a software that uses the JDOM API, and it will probably be released as a commercial product. (so it won't be open source) So am I pretty much screwed and should find another solution ?
