Subject Re: How to reference a multimodule project from a pom
Date Wed, 11 Jun 2014 23:52:13 GMT
We have given these jars the name "aggregation jars".
You add a 6th project that produces a jar containing the 5 "real" jars 
and have your projects reference the aggregation jar.

Others have used the term "bundle" for this (Apache CXF)  but that may 
confuse people who have OSGI "bundles" in mind. is a short article on what 
we do and why.
You might want to look at other notes that we have tagged with "Maven" 
as well.
