      Description

      Is it possible to greatly shorten the pom by using xml attributes ?

      For example the dependency element :

      <dependency>
      <groupId>junit</groupId>
      <artifactId>junit</artifactId>
      <version>4.0</version>
      <type>jar</type>
      <scope>test</scope>
      <optional>true</optional>
      </dependency>

      Can be shortened to

      <dependency groupId="junit" artifactId="junit" version="4.0" type="jar" scope="test" optional="true" />
