Subject [Suggestion] Better handling of artifacts with missing pom
Date Sun, 08 Feb 2009 14:37:30 GMT

I came across MRM-799 (Better handling of artifacts with missing pom). I 
suggest that a POM is created with at least the basic information such 
as the groupId, artifactId, and version whenever an artifact (without 
POM) is selected in Browse. The POM created is not necessarily put in 
the filesystem so that it will not violate the purpose of "Generate POM" 
option in Upload when not selected. This should allow the users to 
view/download the artifact even without the presence of the POM.

Another approach is to have a field in the database that would track 
artifacts with no POM. This field can also be used to monitor repository 
health and also be able to deal with this issue before an exception is 
thrown (not allowing artifacts to be viewed/downloaded).
