    <div class="">Unfortunately we have no plans to deliver further work
      on JAI. We don’t have plans to re-host the source code now that
      the previous location, <a href="http://java.net" class="">java.net</a>,
      is no longer available. If we got many more requests as yours it
      might be possible that we would find a new home for the previously
      open-sourced code but always under the prior license. </div>

    <div class="">The due-diligence work to determine if it could be
      open sourced under a different license will not be resourced.<br>
