Hi everyone

As I said earlier, I've worked on the tool and rebuilt it. Now it works 
with the velocity API that Nathan Bubna has given me. Instead of putting 
all the refernces in a list I build a tree structure where the 
references are leaves and the #foreach-loops are nodes. 
TemplateAnalyzer_TreeGui.jar shows this structure in a Swing-GUI as a 
JTree.
Execute it like this: java -jar TemplateAnalyzer_TreeGui.jar foo.vm
foo.vm is the name of the template.

You can download the new version 1.1 here: 
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=226718.

I hope you can use it to get an overview of your templates.

Kind regards

Simon

PS: @Ahmed: To scan for the used references for the user written 
templates I would recommend you to use the TemplateTool from Nathan 
Bubna: Just get your template, call TemplateTool.referenceList() with 
the template as parameter, and look at each entry in the returned list 
if it contains a forbidden reference.
