Subject Re: Referencing a parent POM without relativePath
Date Fri, 23 Nov 2012 16:22:01 GMT
Why don't you think that Maven will fish out a disconnected parent
from Nexus? Many builds all over depend on this behavior.

You just name the G/A/V and no relativePath, and Maven will download
just as it would a dependency.

If this isn't working for you we'd need more information to diagnose.
