No. Notice the line "This product *includes* software developed by the
Apached Software Foundation" (emphasis mine). There is some Apache code in
there, and they are disclosing that, but Apache is not a viral license and
does not require that the entire system be released under the Apache
license. A good chunk of the software is copyright Sun or IBM, and they
have their own licensing terms for how you can use it or distribute it.
