Subject [jira] Created: (IVY-616) Maven Dependency Management is not used to determine artifact version

Maven Dependency Management is not used to determine artifact version

                 Key: IVY-616
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-alpha-2
            Reporter: Jim Bonanno

We recently hit an issue with resolving some POMs with the ibiblio resolver and usepoms=true.
The problem is that the version for a dependency can be stored in the dependency management
section of a parent POM.

The apache directory server is an example.

Note that the POM for the parent build artifact has the version information for the last 5

The PomModuleDescriptorParser currently only builds a dependency descriptor if the groupId,
artifactId and version are all set. So for the case of apache directory server, many of the
transitive dependencies are ignored.

I have been working on an extension to the PomModuleDescriptorParser that build the dependency
management information at the end of the project/parent element by parsing the parent chain.
Then if a dependency is found without a version, then the dependency management information
is used.  I attach the patch after some more testing.
