Subject [jira] Created: (ARCHETYPE-366) Maven mirror consulted after, rather than instead of, archetypeRepository URL
Date Wed, 09 Mar 2011 21:50:23 GMT
Maven mirror consulted after, rather than instead of, archetypeRepository URL

                 Key: ARCHETYPE-366
             Project: Maven Archetype
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Generator
    Affects Versions: 2.0
         Environment: Ubuntu 10.04, JDK 6.
            Reporter: Jesse Glick
            Priority: Minor

I have a local Nexus instance running, with a mirror of Central, and in {{settings.xml}}:


This works fine for normal Maven operations. However, {{archetype:generate}} tries to download
from the public repo _first_. So when I am online, after typing this:

rm -rf ~/.m2/repository/org/codehaus/mojo/archetypes test
mvn -DarchetypeVersion=1.2 -Darchetype.interactive=false -DgroupId=test -DarchetypeArtifactId=osgi-archetype
-DarchetypeRepository= -Dversion=1.0-SNAPSHOT -DarchetypeGroupId=org.codehaus.mojo.archetypes
-Dbasedir=/tmp -Dpackage=test -DartifactId=test --batch-mode archetype:generate

I see:

[INFO] Archetype defined by properties
(4 KB at 8.7 KB/sec)
(947 B at 8.3 KB/sec)

with no mention of Nexus; when I am offline:

[INFO] Archetype defined by properties
Downloading: http://localhost:6969/nexus/content/repositories/central/org/codehaus/mojo/archetypes/osgi-archetype/1.2/osgi-archetype-1.2.jar
Downloaded: http://localhost:6969/nexus/content/repositories/central/org/codehaus/mojo/archetypes/osgi-archetype/1.2/osgi-archetype-1.2.jar
(4 KB at 128.8 KB/sec)
Downloading: http://localhost:6969/nexus/content/repositories/central/org/codehaus/mojo/archetypes/osgi-archetype/1.2/osgi-archetype-1.2.pom
Downloaded: http://localhost:6969/nexus/content/repositories/central/org/codehaus/mojo/archetypes/osgi-archetype/1.2/osgi-archetype-1.2.pom
(947 B at 57.8 KB/sec)

once this resource is cached in the Nexus mirror repo. (Since the online command does not
ask Nexus, it normally is _not_ cached there and offline project creation simply fails; to
force Nexus to cache it, I need to ask Maven to download it as a dep of something.)

If I do not specify an explicit {{archetypeRepository}} then I get

[INFO] Archetype repository missing. Using the one from [org.codehaus.mojo.archetypes:osgi-archetype:1.2]
found in catalog remote

and Nexus is consulted first, but this parameter is needed as a workaround for ARCHETYPE-344.

One complicating factor with this example is that the 1.2 release of the archetype does not
seem to be present in the Central index; I have no clue why. (It was released on February
15, i.e. more than three weeks ago, and my understanding is that the index is rebuilt weekly.)
May not have anything to do with this bug, though.
