Yes, this works.  You can create a POM like the one shown in Section 3.6.1 *and* install it
into your repo.  Then, you can declare a dependency on it like so:

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/maven-v4_0_0.xsd">
  <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
  <groupId>test.packaging</groupId>
  <artifactId>dependency-grouping-pom</artifactId>
  <packaging>jar</packaging>
  <version>1.0.0</version>
  <dependencies>
    <dependency>
      <groupId>org.sonatype.mavenbook</groupId>
      <artifactId>persistence-deps</artifactId>
      <version>1.0</version>
      <type>pom</type>
    </dependency>
  </dependencies>
</project>

Subject: Wrong info in "Maven: The Complete Reference", chapter 3.6.1

Hi users and devs.

Am I too stupid to get it working or is the description in chapter 3.6.1, "Grouping Dependencies"
(http://books.sonatype.com/mvnref-book/reference/pom-relationships-sect-pom-best-practice.html)
actually wrong? What is described there does not work at all in Maven 3.x. Did it ever?

Regards
