pom.properties why do we use this


Is there any advantage of using pom.properties file to store version, groupid and artifact id instead of putting it in pom.xml (can I do this?). I am looking at a sample plugin and saw this kind of usage.

Please let me know why we need to use this, I was thinking we can put these parameters like jira.version etc in pom.xml why another properties file

Maybe the pom.properties is used by the classpath?
