Subject Re: Is there any maven plugin to add dependency to existing pom.xml ?
Date Fri, 11 Oct 2013 18:28:22 GMT
Here is another use case.  Suppose I programmatically want to make sure that
my database is backwards compatible with all versions of my application.  I
may have a test suite that compiles the project using different jars, which
represent different versions of the persistence module.

I can verify no exceptions or errors and that data can be extracted.  I
could alos programmatically determine that a database created with any
version was readable by any other version.  This is huge!

Imagine the database is expanding, fields being added and deleted.  If the
database was created and writen using my-database-1.0.3-jar, could it be
read with 1.0.2-jar and 1.0.5-jar.  You may not be able to do anything about
1.0.2 reading 1.0.3, because 1.0.3 is already released, but that would
enable you to create a database jar that was forward compatible (or
scalable) and backwards compatible.
