Subject Re: [RTC] Remove Geronimo modules from dependencyManagement in root pom.xml
Date Sat, 01 Jul 2006 21:00:57 GMT
The only advantage of listing internal modules in  
dependencyManagement is so that you don't need to include the version  
and/or type where its referenced.  That seems like a good idea, but  
in practice it adds more complexity to the configuration and more on  
going maintenance and coupling of modules into the root pom, which is  
not a very nice thing.

IMO dependencyManagement really shines for thirdparty/external  
dependencies, not internal ones.
