Subject [jira] [Created] (DIRSTUDIO-1055) Investigate usage of mirrors for update site
Date Thu, 11 Jun 2015 23:01:00 GMT
Stefan Seelmann created DIRSTUDIO-1055:

             Summary: Investigate usage of mirrors for update site
                 Key: DIRSTUDIO-1055
             Project: Directory Studio
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: studio-updatesite
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-M9
            Reporter: Stefan Seelmann
             Fix For: 2.0.0-M10

Apache projects should use mirrors for downloads. We use them for normal download pages, and
also for Eclipse update site.

A mirror can be down. On the normal download page that is no big problem, a reload of the
page chooses another mirror.

But with Eclipse update site it is different: If the mirror is not available it just shows
"No content", only the log shows an error. Even worse is that Eclipse remembers the URL and
reuses it. I had bad luck to get (INFRA-9804) which isn't working,
and also after Eclipse restart it continued to contact that site.

We have to investigate a better way how to use mirros for the update site. Maybe it can be
configured that it isn't retried.

In the meantime I'll configure the update site to use "", this will at
least distribute downloads to two servers.
