Subject [jira] (MDEPLOY-144) retry failed deploy does not work on wagon authentication errors
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2012 15:59:02 GMT
Ben Tatham created MDEPLOY-144:

             Summary: retry failed deploy does not work on wagon authentication errors
                 Key: MDEPLOY-144
             Project: Maven 2.x and 3.x Deploy Plugin
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: deploy:deploy
    Affects Versions: 2.7
         Environment: Apache Maven 3.0.4 (r1232337; 2012-01-17 03:44:56-0500)
Maven home: C:\tools\maven\apache-maven-3.0.4
Java version: 1.6.0_29, vendor: Sun Microsystems Inc.
Java home: C:\tools\Java\jdk1.6.0_29\jre
Default locale: en_CA, platform encoding: Cp1252
OS name: "windows 7", version: "6.1", arch: "amd64", family: "windows"
            Reporter: Ben Tatham
            Priority: Minor

I have increased the retryFailedDeploymentCount to 10, which does work when I have seen the
upload timeout.  
But when webdav wagon returns 401, it does not retry.  I can understand why it wouldn't do
that (in most cases, it would just fail again, like if you get a 400 due to the artifact already
existing in Nexus, and even most authentication failures), but allow me to explain the scenario.

Why I want it to retry:
Oddly, our Nexus installation occasionally fails to properly authenticate (our IT people say
its due to some difference in ActiveDirectory on WindowsServer 2008 from 2000, and Nexus LDAP
does it the 2000 way).
This is very annoying, because it will fail almost always on the 2nd or 3rd artifact to upload
during deployment, which means to properly deploy the release, we have to either delete the
already uploaded artifacts for that release from Nexus, or do manual deploy-file/via nexus
ui of the remaining artifacts.  

I have looked at the code to try and create a patch, but its been hard to piece together the
code paths, as it looks like it depends on the maven installation, not the dependency hierarchy
of maven-deploy-plugin.  Specifically, my guess it is handled inside artifact-manager.
