NAME
       pom_xpath_remove - remove a node from XML file

SYNOPSIS
       %pom_xpath_remove [OPTIONS] XPath [XML-file-location]...

OPTIONS
       -r
           Work in recursive mode. That means that given node is also removed
           from all enabled submodules of given POM file(s). Has no effect if
           the file is not Maven POM.

       -f
           Do not throw an error when one of the specified files doesn’t
           contain given node.

DESCRIPTION
       This macro patches specified POM file removing all XML nodes described
       by the XPath expression. This also works on attributes and text nodes.

       XPath is an expression describing a set of XML nodes to be removed from
       the POM file. It must be a properly formated XPath 1.0 expression, as
       described in http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath/.

       Maven POM files use specific XML namespace
       http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 as default. This namespace needs to
       be explicitly specified in XPath expressions by prefixing all node
       names with pom (i.e. pom:modelVersion).

       Many other XML formats also use namespaces which you have to explicitly
       specify. This script will use the namespace prefix names from the xmlns
       declarations in the document’s root element. So if the document begins
       with <root xmlns:my="myurl.com"> you would select the root node with
       XPath expression /my:root. If the document specifies a default
       namespace (eg xmlns="myurl.com") use the prefix named default to acces
       elements in that namespace.

       XML location can be either a full path to the XML, or a path to the
       directory containing pom.xml or ivy.xml. If XML location is not given
       then pom.xml or ivy.xml from current working directory is used. When
       both pom.xml and ivy.xml are present, pom.xml is processed. You can
       specify more file locations.

EXAMPLES
       %pom_xpath_remove pom:project/pom:reporting - this call removes
       reporting section from POM in current working directory.

       %pom_xpath_remove 'ivy:configure' build.xml - this call disables
       loading of ivy configuration in build.xml file. Note the use of ivy
       namespace which was declared in the document as
       xmlns:ivy="antlib:org.apache.ivy.ant".
