Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-996) Remove excessive HEAD requests for URL repository
Date Mon, 02 Feb 2009 15:51:59 GMT


Xavier Hanin commented on IVY-996:

Thanks to Nicolas Lalevée, an update site with trunk versions of both IvyDE and Ivy is now
available here:

Please use this to test the trunk Ivy version and tell me if it works as you expect.

>          Components: Core

> h3. Fixing useless extra HEAD requests
> When searching for an artifact named "project" version "2.2.+" for organization "org",
Ivy attempts HEAD requests for completely not possible versions.
> IE: /org/project/0.9.2/ivy-0.9.2.xml
> This is not terribly painful unless you have thousands of builds and are not on the same
network as your ivy server. 
> h3. Are HEAD requests even necessary?
> Simply getting a directory listing should be good enough to determine if there is an
artifact (for choosing latest-release). Now, after one is chosen, if no ivy.xml file exists,
I could understand trying the next one, but trying all of them, just to select the latest
one anyways seems like a complete waste.
