Generate Release POMs

To generate POMs with resolved information (e.g. version numbers) to check the values that the Release Plugin will use, execute the prepare-with-pom goal. Resolved values will be saved in release-pom.xml.

mvn release:prepare-with-pom

This relies on being present from a previous release preparation. If this is not the case, you need to give the goal the name of the URL and optional tag to perform the release from. For example:

mvn release:prepare-with-pom

After the release is complete, the and other release files will be removed from the checkout.
