goals:
versions:commit

Removes the initial backup of the pom, thereby accepting the changes.

versions:compare-dependencies

Compare dependency versions of the current project to dependencies or dependency management of a remote repository project. Can optionally update locally the project instead of reporting the comparison

versions:dependency-updates-report

Generates a report of available updates for the dependencies of a project.

versions:display-dependency-updates

Displays all dependencies that have newer versions available. It will also display dependencies which are used by a plugin or defined in the plugin within a pluginManagement.

versions:display-parent-updates

Displays any updates of the project's parent project

versions:display-plugin-updates

Displays all plugins that have newer versions available, taking care of Maven version prerequisites.

versions:display-property-updates

Displays properties that are linked to artifact versions and have updates available.

versions:force-releases

Replaces any -SNAPSHOT versions with a release version, older if necessary (if there has been a release).

versions:help

Display help information on versions-maven-plugin. Call mvn versions:help -Ddetail=true -Dgoal=<goal-name> to display parameter details.

versions:lock-snapshots

Attempts to resolve unlocked snapshot dependency versions to the locked timestamp versions used in the build. For example, an unlocked snapshot version like "1.0-SNAPSHOT" could be resolved to "1.0-20090128.202731-1". If a timestamped snapshot is not available, then the version will remained unchanged. This would be the case if the dependency is only available in the local repository and not in a remote snapshot repository.

versions:plugin-updates-report

Generates a report of available updates for the plugins of a project.

versions:property-updates-report

Generates a report of available updates for properties of a project which are linked to the dependencies and/or plugins of a project.

versions:resolve-ranges

Attempts to resolve dependency version ranges to the specific version being used in the build. For example a version range of "[1.0, 1.2)" would be resolved to the specific version currently in use "1.1".

versions:revert

Restores the pom from the initial backup.

versions:set

Sets the current project's version and based on that change propagates that change onto any child modules as necessary.

versions:set-property

Set a property to a given version without any sanity checks. Please be careful this can lead to changes which might not build anymore. The sanity checks are done by other goals like update-properties or update-property etc. they are not done here. So use this goal with care.

versions:set-scm-tag

Updates the current project's SCM tag.

versions:unlock-snapshots

Attempts to resolve unlocked snapshot dependency versions to the locked timestamp versions used in the build. For example, an unlocked snapshot version like "1.0-SNAPSHOT" could be resolved to "1.0-20090128.202731-1". If a timestamped snapshot is not available, then the version will remained unchanged. This would be the case if the dependency is only available in the local repository and not in a remote snapshot repository.

versions:update-child-modules

Scans the current projects child modules, updating the versions of any which use the current project to the version of the current project.

versions:update-parent

Sets the parent version to the latest parent version.

versions:update-properties

versions:update-property

Sets a property to the latest version in a given range of associated artifacts.
