Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-864) HTTP Handlers ignore unsuccessful response codes.
Date Tue, 22 Jul 2008 13:49:31 GMT


James P. White commented on IVY-864:

I make a lot of use of the 'url' attribute of 'dependency' in order to (ab)use Ivy for download
& cache of JARs that aren't in Ivy or Maven repositories (of course I use repos when available).
  That must not go through getURLInfo for some reason because download is called even when
the host is unknown or the file is missing, so that may be another part of this problem.

I did do some minimal testing of the patch, but didn't create any test cases as you can see.

I'm also going to be looking into using Ivy RoundUp and the PackagerResolver.

sends back as the contents of the artifact.  This isn't so good if it is something like the
HTML message for a 404 or 503 and what you wanted was a JAR file.  In fact it is pretty bad
because then the cache is poisoned and the user is left with purging the cache as the only
