I bet you have been faced with the situation to get the version of your Maven

I have seen many solutions via using Linux tools like
also seen many solutions like using exec-maven-plugin like this:
1 2 3 4 5

If you have correctly pinned the version of your plugins in your pom file or in a parent pom of the project this can be simplified like this:
Apart from extracting the version you can also extract other information from the pom file like the following:
More sophisticated expressions like the following are possible too:
1 2 3 4
