What's the advantage of using Maven's dependency management in the parent pom.xml ?

The dependency management section is a mechanism for centralizing dependency information. When you have a set of projects that inherit a common parent it's possible to put all information about the dependency in the common POM and have simpler references to the artifacts in the child POMs.

This question is not specific to AEM.

You can find a description of this mechanism in Maven – Introduction to the Dependency Mechanism .

I see the benefit to depend on very same artifacts in many different maven projects (having just 1 bundle might be common, but I know many projects with more than 1 project bundle).
