> node js and its corresponding package manager - npm - follows semvar notation to depict
the dependencies.
> The supported syntax variations for version specification can be seen here. https://github.com/isaacs/node-semver#ranges
> I find their syntax to be much more intuitive and subsequently user friendly than what
is followed in current maven dependency <version> tag (http://books.sonatype.com/mvnref-book/reference/pom-relationships-sect-project-dependencies.html#pom-relationships-sect-version-ranges).
> Hope we can make the pom xml little more user friendly by adapting similar version specification
syntax.
