Super POM

This lesson explains the role of the Super POM, or the base POM, that all POM files implicitly inherit from.

Maven defines a base POM file called Super POM that is implicitly inherited by all POMs. Recall the minimal POM we presented in the previous lesson. The minimal POM inherits several properties from the Super POM. We can also explicitly define a parent POM for a project other than the Super POM, but the parent POM will in turn inherit from the Super POM. The Super POM is presented in the widget below and referenced here.
