      Description

      When building an artifact with a SNAPSHOT version,
      Specification-Version and Implementation-Version are both set to ${pom.version} (as described in the documentation).

      But this will break the deployment in a container like WebLogic Server 10.3.4.
      This behavior is compliant with specification
      http://download.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/technotes/guides/versioning/spec/versioning2.html#wp89939
      where it is said that "Specification version numbers use a Dewey decimal notation consisting of numbers seperated by periods"

      Further in this spec, in ยง "1.5.10 Rationale for limiting Implementation version numbers to identity", it is explained why Implementation-Version need to be compared strictly for equality.

      So we can understand that:

      • Specification-Version must NOT have "-SNAPSHOT" suffix. This is legal to keep only the beginning of ${pom.version}, because it represents the spec version, not the build ;
      • Implementation-Version has to be set to ${pom.version} to represent the exact version of the build.

      This used to be the behavior in Maven 1:
