Subject [jira] Commented: (MECLIPSE-377) eclipse:eclipse -DdownloadSources=true shouldn't attempt download more than once in a multi-project
Date Fri, 28 Nov 2008 12:42:19 GMT


Julien Renaut commented on MECLIPSE-377:

That is probably more interesting than dropping the entire artifact cache but it looks a bit
trickier to implement.

Getting the cache for a given artifact could be retrieved based on the artifact physical location.

BUT, if that's the kind of information we want to retrieve from our artifacts (whether there
is a source attachment, or a javadoc atachment, or even a custom attachment) then it's the
maven metadata that should indicate the existence of given attachments. This way, the eclipse
plugin would just query the metada about existing attachments and easily discover if a given
source or javadoc can be retrieved instead of maintening the cache.

> If you run "mvn eclipse:eclipse -DdownloadSources=true" it attempts to download source
jars for all projects, even when it has tried (and failed) to download the jars in earlier
projects.  This slows down the goal a lot on slow network connections.
