The Mojo team is pleased to announce the release of the License Maven Plugin, version 1.8.
This plugin manages the license of a maven project and its dependencies (update file headers, download dependencies licenses, check thirdparty licenses, …).
This License Plugin has the following goals:
license:add-third-party Goal to generate the third-party license file. This file contains a list of the dependencies and their licenses. Each dependency and it’s license is displayed on a single line in the format
: : – <project-url> It will also copy it in the class-path (says add the generated directory as a resource of the build).
license:aggregate-add-third-party This aggregator goal (will be executed only once and only on pom projects) executed the add-third-party on all his modules (in a parellel build cycle) then aggreates all the third-party files in final one in the pom project.
license:check-file-header The goal to check if the state of header on project source files.
license:comment-style-list Displays all the available comment style to box file headers.
license:download-licenses Download the license files of all the current project’s dependencies, and generate a summary file containing a list of all dependencies and their licenses.
license:license-list Display all available licenses.
license:third-party-report Generates a report of all third-parties detected in the module.
license:update-file-header The goal to update (or add) the header on project source files. This goal replace the update-header goal which can not deal with Copyright. This goal use a specific project file descriptor project.xml to describe all files to update for a whole project.
license:update-project-license Updates (or creates) the main project license file according to the given license defines as licenseName. Can also generate a bundled license file (to avoid collision names in class-path). This file is by default generated in META-INF class-path directory.
