Source code and other files headers

All project java source files will contain the following header:

 * gvSIG. Desktop Geographic Information System.
 * Copyright © 2007-2012 gvSIG Association
 * This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or
 * modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License

In other languages source code (C, C++, etc.), as well other configuration or definition files (XML, properties, txt, etc.) the previous header must be included also, using the related comment format.

This header has been defined into the eclipse Code Templates configuration, so it gets included by default when a new java file is created.

To update existing files without header or with an old one, the maven-license-plugin maven plugin has been configured. That configuration is available into the pom.xml file of the org.gvsig.maven.base.pom project.

To update or include the previous header automatically, just call:

mvn license:format

Take into account the previous order will modify the headers of all the maven plugin supported files. If anyone is not correcto or it is not mapped, it might be easily added to the configuration.

Yo may also validate if a project files headers are correct by calling:

mvn license:check
