com.jcabi:parent POM declares a number of most useful artifacts in its dependencyManagement section. You can use them without specifying version. Thus, you don't need to worry about keeping versions up to date. When you're ready to upgrade, just change the version of our parent POM and all dependencies will be upgraded automatically.
These dependencies are defined always:
- jcabi-log, jcabi-manifests, and all other jcabi-* artifacts.
- commons-io, commons-lang, and almost all other Apache commons.
- org.slf4j:slf4j-log4j12 and log4j:log4j.
Check out pom.xml for a complete list of dependencies, we update it every month.
