It's really hard to fix 600+ files :-(

But the problem here is the lack of license file. I don't think that Jalopy
can help here, at least not for JSP, FTL etc, files.

Using a maven plugin for this would be nice but maybe better if activated on

Well, in fact the "license:format" goal will be run on-demand, only when
needed, the license:check (similar to RAT maven plugin, I don't know even if
it is necessary) will be activated in the "release" profile.

As I understood for your comments it is not possible because you have

Maybe I have not been clear: there are files completely without license
headers, without placeholders. The license plugin helps putting it in the
right places.
The placeholders (variables) I was referring to are in the "txt" file
containing the header to add to files. See:
(search for "variable replacement").
