This doesn't really explain much. It's confusing. It's similar to GPL. So if I release an app using DWT, I need to release the sourcecode for my app? Or do I only need to release the code for DWT (if I did any changes to the sourcecode).

Not a lawyer, but it doesn't appear to really target libraries and is more directed to a complete application. The way it is written suggest that DWT would be a derived work and any changes to it will also be derived and need to forward the EPL license.

However it makes no specific statements about using libraries as part of your code, which would suggest that the code outside the EPL library is not considered "the EPL Program" and thus not a derived work.
