Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-6679) HTML content in POM: Maven should validate content before storing in local repo
Date Mon, 01 Jul 2019 19:48:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6679?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16876450#comment-16876450
] 

Michael Osipov commented on MNG-6679:
-------------------------------------

No, not really because we do not and cannot validate content. Therefore we have the checksum.
It would require to have a {{libmagic}} as well as metadata information stored in the repo
with the content type of the item. Not going to have for Maven 3.x.

You might also want to note MNG-5728, https://github.com/apache/maven/pull/36.

> For some odd reasons somethimes errors just happen and a maven repo delivers an HTML
error or login page for a request of a POM or JAR file. It seems as if the status code is
valid then Maven (might be anything under the hood, maybe even ether?) is saving the result
without any sanity check or validation.
> Therefore I frequently end up with "POM" or "JAR" files in my local repo that are no
XML but HTML nonsens.
>  
> Example:
> {code:java}
