Subject Re: Taverna License review wiki page

Also, I tried using the maven license plugin to add a license header (to a
local file copies), but kept getting this error: "licenseName can not be
null nor empty." It's probably because I don't quite know how to use this
plugin. I followed the instructions here (
and here (
and added the license plugin to the project pom.xml, but could not resolve
the error. One thing I couldn't find: where does the plugin get the text
for the license header?

Here is what I added to the pom:

              <licenseName>Apache 2.0</licenseName>

Cheers! Have a nice weekend.
