            String jarName = dependency.getName();
            String depName = regex.matcher(jarName).replaceFirst("");
            String dependencyName = getDependencyName(mappings; depName);
  "mapped dependency name {} to {} for license/notice check"; depName; dependencyName);
            checkFile(dependencyName; jarName; licenses; "LICENSE");
            checkFile(dependencyName; jarName; notices; "NOTICE");

            File licenseFile = new File(licensesDir.get().getAsFile(); getFileName(dependencyName; licenses; "LICENSE"));
            LicenseInfo licenseInfo = LicenseAnalyzer.licenseType(licenseFile);
