Maven: How to upgrading Wicket version

Not quite a year ago I followed the instructions in http://herebebeasties.com/2007-10-07/wicket-quickstart/ to download and build the Wicket Quickstart project (essentially a "Hello World" application). I then manipulated this project into the application I needed.

The .pom file provided contained "<version>${wicket.version}</version>" for the versions of three dependencies -- wicket, wicket-extensions and wicket-datetime. It downloaded version 1.3.3 of the three .jar files, as that was the latest version at the time. I manipulated the Quickstart project into my own application.

Now I would like to upgrade to version 1.3.5 -- how do I do that? Do I have to change the definition of the variable ${wicket.version} and re-compile? If so, where would I find that variable -- it is not in my .POM file.

What do I need to do so that Maven will download version 1.3.5 of the Wicket .jars and use it to rebuild my project?

Is the "wicket.version" property being set somewhere in the pom? Or perhaps in a master pom?

Of course, one thing you could do is simply:

Thanks! I also had to "mvn clean" before it would do anything.

But I'm kind of curious as to where the ${wicket.version} variable is being set. Or does it select the most recent version in the local repository? (If so, it seems like there would be a command to update the local repository independently of whether a project is calling for a new version.)

The syntax to use the latest version is:



Effectively, this means the latest version from 1.3.5 on. The property value must be set somewhere in the Maven pom or its included poms, or from some global setting (settings.xml).
