The goal of the jboss parent pom is to provide some default settings for jboss projects. It is recommended, but not required that project poms extend from the jboss parent pom.
The parent pom can be used by adding the following configuration to a project pom:
<parent> <groupId>org.jboss</groupId> <artifactId>jboss-parent</artifactId> <version>3</version> </parent>
The pom is located under version control here:
