Offcourse, why didn't I think of using property for the version

Thank you Subir

Use a property for the version + you can also use dependencyManagement.
But I doubt whether dependencyManagement version will flow to
dependency:unpack configurations. So property is best solution.

Subject: Dependency:unpack version problem

Hi all,

I am using the dependency:unpack goal of the maven dependency plugin to
unpack a library that is a dependency of the project itself. This
dependency is an internally maintaned library and is updated frequently.
So whenever the library is updated, we tell our developers to update
their version of the dependency and everything works the way we wanted.

The problem is that, now that I am using the dependency:unpack to copy
some configuration files from the library into the project, I would have
to tell our developers to update the dependency version in two places,
one in the <dependencies> section and other in the <build> section where
I am doing the unpacking

Is there is a better solution to this? Can I only change the version
number in the <dependencies> section and maybe read that version of this
dependency from there in my <build> section? 

Or any other ideas?
