Subject Re: How to publish additional metadata with an artifact that is needed at retrieve time
Date Wed, 29 Jan 2014 07:49:53 GMT
Maybe, you can add a buildfile to the package that your publishing ? When
you retrieve that package, you can unzip it and execute the included
buildfile to do what needs to be done with that package. That buildfile can
also read the property file.

Or you might also publish your packages in a package format that is known
by a package manager (e.g. rpm, debian-packages when you are on linux).
