Sorry for the delayed response. You can modify the templates to remove the "final " before each variable declaration. A fairly quick way to do this is: use find/replace on the template text to replace the string: "final " with "". You can modify the #assertEqualsCall(...) macro to use Assert.assertEquals(...) instead of assertEquals(...). You would also need to replace the import statements: "import static org.junit.Assert.assertEquals;" with "import org.junit.Assert;".
