Maven buildtime and version creation

When you are building a brand new application, it is usually the time, to challenge the old principles and to conserve the good ones while replacing the rest.

My latest challenge was ... providing visible time of build and version of web application build with Maven. If you are now thinking "bah, that is just easy", you are right, because it is. But my path towards the solution presented in this post was not as easy and straightforward as I would have imagined, so I am presenting one hopefully simple instruction how to do it.
