Subject Re: consumer documentation out of date?

Hi Jim,

AFAICT, you can pattern it like one of the consumers here:

You can probably take a look at ArtifactMissingChecksumsConsumer in
this module as an example. Since Archiva is now using Spring as the
container, you can configure your consumer as a Spring bean (see
src/main/resources/META-INF/spring-context.xml in the same module).
We're using the plexus-spring adapter which already does the
conversion of Plexus components to Spring beans.

To plugin Plexus components to your consumer, just use the Plexus
component "role-hint" as the bean id when referencing the component in
spring. If no "role-hint" is specified, the default is the class' name
specified in the "role" attribute in camel case. For example in the
ArtifactMissingChecksumsConsumer bean config in the spring-context.xml
file I mentioned above, it references the bean "archivaConfiguration".
The implementation being referenced for that is
DefaultArchivaConfiguration. If you look at that class'
@plexus.component annotation, the "role" is
"org.apache.maven.archiva.configuration.ArchivaConfiguration" and
since no "role-hint" is specified, the role-hint/bean ID then is

I hope this answers questions #2 and #3. I'm not sure what you meant
by question #1.. can you please clarify? :)
