I tried to read and understand how parent pom.xml files are used but so far I was not very successful.
As far as I understand there exist several parent pom.xml files, depending on the organisation taking care of it, i.e. pom-imagej, pom-fiji, pom-imglib2 etc (like listed at ImageJ’s Architecture website). I could not figure out where to put one of these pom-xxx.xml files to use it as parent pom.
I came to the conclusion that I do not have to take care of the parent pom file at all. I just have to refer to it in my local pom.xml file in the section . The instruction “Update your parent pom” (from http://imagej.net/Writing_plugins) could just mean that the version number should be adjusted to reflect the lastest available version on Github.
Is that correct?
Thanks a lot.
