    Artifact metadata on Maven central not up to date

    Emond Papegaaij Newbie

      Hi,

       

      It seems the maven-metadata.xml files on Maven central are not updated correctly for most (if not all) arquillian related artifacts. For example, https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/jboss/shrinkwrap/resolver/shrinkwrap-resolver-bom/maven-metadata.xml stops at 3.0.0-alpha-4, missing beta-1 and beta-2. https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/arquillian/cube/arquillian-cube-parent/maven-metadata.xml stops at 1.0.0, missing 1.0.1, 1.1.0, 1.2.0, 1.3.0, 1.3.1, 1.3.2, 1.4.0, 1.5.0, 1.5.1 and 1.6.0. Looking at several artifacts, it looks like the metadata has not been updated since the end of march or beginning of april. The missing metadata is causing problems for us as we rely on this metadata for our automated updating process (using the versions-maven-plugin).

       

      Best regards,

      Emond Papegaaij

          Thanks for reporting - this might be related to our switch to Bintray. We will investigate.

            Quick update about this issue. With awesome Bintray support we are investigating the root cause of having maven-metadata.xml out of sync. I will keep you posted about the progress.

             

            To overcome this problem you can point to JCenter Bintray repository where we also ship our artifacts. This can be done for example in settings.xml

             

            <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
            <settings xsi:schemaLocation='http://maven.apache.org/SETTINGS/1.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/settings-1.0.0.xsd'
                      xmlns='http://maven.apache.org/SETTINGS/1.0.0' xmlns:xsi='http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance'>

              Thanks. For now I've added bintray as a mirror to our local Artifactory repository for all artifacts with either jboss or arquillian in the name. That seems to help.
