build-helper:parse-version

Full name:

org.codehaus.mojo:build-helper-maven-plugin:3.3.0:parse-version

Description:

Parse a version string and set properties containing the component parts of the version. This mojo sets the following properties:
  [propertyPrefix].majorVersion
  [propertyPrefix].minorVersion
  [propertyPrefix].incrementalVersion
  [propertyPrefix].qualifier
  [propertyPrefix].buildNumber
Where the propertyPrefix is the string set in the mojo parameter. The parsing of the above is based on the following format of the version:
 <majorversion [> . <minorversion [> . <incrementalversion ] ] [> - <buildnumber | qualifier ]>
It will be tried to parse the version as an OSGi version. It this is successful the following property will be set accordingly. If this is not possible a warning will be emitted.
  [propertyPrefix].osgiVersion
This goal also sets the following properties:
  [propertyPrefix].nextMajorVersion
  [propertyPrefix].nextMinorVersion
  [propertyPrefix].nextIncrementalVersion
  [propertyPrefix].nextBuildNumber
This goal also sets the following properties:
  [formattedPropertyPrefix].majorVersion
  [formattedPropertyPrefix].minorVersion
  [formattedPropertyPrefix].incrementalVersion
  [formattedPropertyPrefix].buildNumber
This goal also sets the following properties:
  [formattedPropertyPrefix].nextMajorVersion
  [formattedPropertyPrefix].nextMinorVersion
  [formattedPropertyPrefix].nextIncrementalVersion
  [formattedPropertyPrefix].nextBuildNumber
There is another property set which is named [propertyPrefix].qualifier and furthermore another property which is named [propertyPrefix].qualifier? which contains a prefix - if the qualifier contains anything otherwise the whole property is simply empty.
mvn build-helper:parse-version versions:set \
  -DnewVersion=\${parsedVersion.majorVersion}.\${parsedVersion.nextMinorVersion}.\${parsedVersion.incrementalVersion}\${parsedVersion.qualifier?}
The above properties contain simply incremented versions of the parsed version informations. Those can now be used to update the version of your project via the following to the next Major version:
  mvn build-helper:parse-version versions:set \
     -DnewVersion=\${parsedVersion.nextMajorVersion}.0.0 \
     versions:commit
It can of course being used to increment the minor version:
  mvn build-helper:parse-version versions:set \
     -DnewVersion=\${parsedVersion.majorVersion}.\${parsedVersion.nextMinorVersion}.0 \
     versions:commit
This can make an upgrade of the versions of your project very convenient.
