I have the following pom.xml which is using old version of spring. I am going through it as it was written by someone else and thinking to update it :


Question 1:

Does updating version number here `<version>1.3.3.RELEASE</version>` and here `<version>4.2.5.RELEASE</version>` for the dependency good enough to use the latest version of Spring boot? OR is it going to break things?


Question 2:

Could anyone explain why the Spring version is defined two times here one under parent tag and one under dependency tag:

Yes by updating to higher version may break things.

So, in order to update and see whether things break or not, I just need to update the version numbers in pom.xml, right?

Helpful hint:


And yes, this is from a project that hasn't been updated in a LONG time.

But if I ever did, I only need to change the Spring version ID in one place!
