Re: [equinox-dev] Copyright comments

Thanks for the reminder, John.

When I went to change the year I discovered a recently added option that will make it less likely to miss the comments. Somewhere between 3.4M1 and 3.4M3 the checkbox shown below was added to the Code Templates preferences:

When that is turned on, then the Generate Comments check box in the New Mumble dialog defaults to check'd so you have to uncheck it to lose the copyright.

I have noticed a few Java classes added lately with no copyright comments. This is just a friendly reminder to ensure you add copyright comments in new Java files. A common culprit is that you might not have the "generate comments" checkbox selected in the New Java Class wizard. Also, since we've just rolled over into a new year, make sure your "New Java files" template has the ${year} variable to ensure the correct year is inserted:
