Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-6604) Intermittent failures while downloading GAVs from Nexus
Date Thu, 04 Jul 2019 18:53:00 GMT


Martin Todorov commented on MNG-6604:

In this day and age saying the such a widely used tool for building code like Maven will not
support multiple VM access will be madness. I'm not a core Maven developer, but I've been
using it and developing plugins and tooling around it since it first popped up many years
ago. CI build farms need this to be properly implemented.

I think that we need to focus on implementing a proper locking mechanism that works for multiple

I get your point about the complexity of fine-tuning this. I don't think one should worry
about large files, as much as tracking inactivity on files (a JVM may have terminated and
left a file behind and then lock things for other JVM-s; if this has happened an easy way
to check it would be to simply see when the last file write activity happened and see, if
the {{maxInactivity}} time has been exceeded). 

What are the classes of importance, if somebody would like to dig into this?

> Hello
> we're running maven 3.6.0 builds in a docker container and we use Nexus OSS configured
as proxy for Maven Central.
> While running our builds using Gitlab CI, we're experiencing intermittent build failures
because Maven cannot find artifacts in Nexus which we verified they are actually available.
> Error example below:

> We tried disabling the keep alive and also disabling the connection pooling but nothing
seems to fix the issue.
