In fact it would be a good idea to document this "secret" storage
that was obviously stopping me using the in-house Apache HTTPD/Tomcat
combination here at UBS. This is because a `catalina.policy' is used
to lock down the security file access. One cannot punch a hole in it

Instead I deployed a normal apache Tomcat 5.5.17 to the box solely for
to work out of the box. After I used the HTTP proxy settings on the
and now I see the whole repository. If Archiva cannot see the
