Subject move data from pom to class or class to pom
Date Wed, 16 Jul 2014 18:18:01 GMT
I have a java class that has a constant in it (static final String). This 
string is a version number, e.g. "1.3.2-test". I need to have this same 
value in a maven plugin configuration (the jaxb plugin) so I am wondering, 
is it better to keep the actual declaration in the code and somehow tell 
maven to take it from the code, or is it better to declare it in the pom 
and tell java to take the literal value to define the constant from the 

I don't know how to do either so I would also like to hear some ideas. I 
am hoping i don't have to use resource filtering since having a source 
file as a resource is kind of problematic to me. It has to be ONLY that 
file that gets filtered, it would need to be in a non-standard location 
not src/main/java (maybe this is not true), and in general, it seems to me 
that treating source code as resource is counter-intuitive

Has anyone else solved this issue with the DRY principle across behaviour 
and build system?

The short background is that maven generates an XML schema via jaxb and 
this schema file is then made available at runtime via a service
