Quick Command – Update the Versions of Maven Build Modules


It is a very clumsy task to update all theinspecifications in the child modules once the parent version has to be upgraded, if we do it by hand. In fact, Maven has a plugin that can do it for you. Steps as follows:

  1. Update the <version> in the parent pom.xml.
  2. In the parent pom.xml directory, run mvn versions:update-child-modules.
