Maven Random Tips
Some random Maven build-tool tips..
For transitive dependencies, where multiple versions of the same dependency are transitively required, maven takes the version that is shallowest in the “dependency:tree” output. When two are equal depth, the first one wins. But when a dependencyManagement declaration exists, then that version is used.
When a pom with direct dependencies is included as a
<dependency> in another pom, those artifacts also become dependencies of the including pom - in whichever scope the includer specifies.
When such a pom is included from within
<dependencyManagement> in another pom, and scope=import is specified, then any dependencyManagement declarations in the other pom become dependencyManagement declarations in the including pom.
