typical solution is to generate the source.

Move the Java code that should contain the version into an own directory 
tree (e.g. src/main/java-templates). Replace the version string with an 
expression (e.g. "${project.version}") and use the copy-resources goal of 
the resources plugin to filter the file into a target driectory tree (e.g. 
target/generated-sources). Bind the goal to the generate-sources phase. Then 
use additionally the build-helper plugin to add target/generated-sources as 
additional source directory and you're done.
