The directory structures align:

I will put either short or full AL headers on the scripts.

find . -name \*xml | xargs grep -L "Licensed to the Apache Software 
Foundation" | xargs wc -l

   39 ./testing/Deployment/pom.xml
    8 ./src/main/java/com/hp/hpl/jena/tdb/tdb-properties.xml
    8 ./src/main/resources/org/apache/jena/tdb/tdb-properties.xml
   55 total

and tdb-properies.xml has 2 Java properties.
