We require jars that are built to conform to maven standards. But they do not need to be
built with maven. That means they do need a pom.properties in there. If gradle does not
add that automatically, you should be able to automate that yourself.
The pom.properties is a very simple file, that requires 3 key value pairs:
#Generated by Maven
#Wed Nov 18 14:44:09 PST 2009
This is necessary for discovery of jars, and versioning of jars within the same JVM. Maven
provides a standard for this, so it seemed redundant us creating yet another way to
declare this meta data.

I keep running into an issue where Drools is looking for a pom.properties file and I get
an error since I'm using Gradle. Does Drools depend on Maven? I noticed there is a
lot of code looking for Maven and pom.xml and pom.properties, why is that?
