Is there a way to use the current date in the POM?

Take a look at the buildnumber plugin. It can be used to generate a build date each time I do a build, as follows:

<plugin>
<groupId>org.codehaus.mojo</groupId>
<artifactId>maven-buildnumber-plugin</artifactId>
<version>0.9.4</version>
<configuration>
<format>{0,date,yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss}</format>
<items>
<item>timestamp</item>
</items>
<doCheck>false</doCheck>
<doUpdate>false</doUpdate>
</configuration>
<executions>
<execution>
<phase>validate</phase>
<goals>
<goal>create</goal>
</goals>
</execution>
</executions>
</plugin>

The build date is available as $buildNumber in my POMs and resource files.
