How do I create ".pom" files? (not pom.xml files)

I noticed that the ibiblio maven2 repository site not only has third party jar files, but also .pom files for those jars that help with transitive dependencies. I am new to Maven. I have created pom.xml files for my modules but I am unsure how to create the .pom files for my module artifacts (e.g. jars, wars). Are the .pom files generated or maintained manually and separately from the pom.xml file dependencies? If they are generated, what plugin and goal should I run to generate them? Thanks a bunch in advance.

It is generated when you deploy your artifact to the remote repository you don't have anything to do.

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
