Mozilla Public License (MPL)

This is a free software license which is not a strong copyleft;
unlike the X11 license, it has some complex restrictions that make it
incompatible with the GNU GPL. That is, a module covered by the GPL and
a module covered by the MPL cannot legally be linked together. We urge
you not to use the MPL for this reason.

However, MPL 1.1 has a provision (section 13) that allows a program
(or parts of it) to offer a choice of another license as well. If part
of a program allows the GNU GPL as an alternate choice, or any other
GPL-compatible license as an alternate choice, that part of the program
has a GPL-compatible license.

The MPL allows dual licensing whereas the CDDL is uncompromising.

If you continue to stay uninformed, it seems to be impossible to have a license
related discussion with you.

Please try to find someone who helps you to understand things....
