The AM build process makes use of the OpenDJ Copyright Check Maven Plugin to perform its copyright checking. This process generally works quite well be can sometimes be confusing. The following are details for those looking to explore further.

Note: All files must have a lowercase file extension

Running the plugin

The Maven plugin is wired up to run on the precommit Maven profile and so is automatically included as part of standard Jenkins build pipelines. However if you would like to invoke this plugin directly to help with debugging/explore copyright errors then the following command run from the top of the AM checkout will run the plugin:

$ mvn org.forgerock.opendj:opendj-copyright-maven-plugin:check-copyright

Parsing Logic

The following are the file extensions and their associated parsing logic:

  • Java-like files: C, CSS, Groovy, H, Java, JS, JSX, Less
  • Batch files: BAT
  • Shell files: Security, SH, LDIF, Properties

To learn more about the parsing logic and corresponding examples of what the copyright should look like, please see the source code.
