Copyright text isn't regenerated [message #422941] Fri, 19 September 2008 12:58 Go to next message

Hi

I have a large software component generated from Ecore models. In the
beginning of each file I want a copyright text. EMF supports this by setting
the following properties in the Generator Model

Copyright Fields = true
Copyright Text = "My copyright text"

This works fine the first time I generate, but if I would like to change the
text, say for example update the copyright year, it doesn't take effect. I
need to delete the file and regenerate for the new copyright text to show.
Why is this?

Also, out of curiosity, what's up with the $Id$ that is appended to the
copyright text?

Regards/
Magnus

This is a known limitation. Other text that isn't regenerated includes
the plugin.xml and MANIFEST.MF.

That's a keyword known to CVS, which the CVS server expands to record
timestamp, user ID, and other tractking information for the file.

If you are not using CVS, then you can define custom templates using
EMF's "dynamic templates" capability to override the HEADER.javajetinc,
HEADER.propertiesjetinc, etc. templates.

Magnus,

I don't even think of it as a limitation. Copyright notices tend to
evolve over time. For example, most will include the year the file
itself was first created as well as the year of the most recent
modification. Simply overwriting the copyright notice doesn't seem like
a good idea.

Hi, Ed,

Good point. Perhaps there's a GSoC project here: a smart copyright
merge that

- updates the date range to include the current year
- adds your employer to the copyright-holders list
- integrates with Mylyn to record the contributor name and bug ID
- formats all of this information tidily

:-D

Ed,

I'm also just stumbling about this "feature". I realized that I forgot
to configure the copyright header property in many genmodel files. Am I
really supposed to add the copyright text to all generated files
manually now?

Cheers

Eike,

There are merge rules you could specialize along with dynamic templates:

<merge:pull
sourceGet="CompilationUnit/getHeader"
targetPut="CompilationUnit/setHeader"/>
