Subject Some issues around artifact resolution
Date Wed, 15 Aug 2007 20:55:35 GMT
While playing with triplesec and the directory plugin I rediscovered  
that the artifact resolver won't check fully resolved artifacts  
against the explicit resolution map.  I think this will make plugins  
generally too inflexible.

Removing this limitation is easy (it's just a couple of lines with  
the comments that otherwise tests break) but it does break a lot of  
tests.  Working through these I think we could simplify most of the  
deployer tests by having a -test.jar artifact or two that includes  
code to set up a "mock server" suitable for testing deployment parts.

So, I'm going to try to set up such a framework and continue working  
on the artifact resolver.  I don't know if after I get the tests  
working further changes will be necessary for deployment to work.  I  
suspect we may have to set up a temporary in-memory deployment  
repository to hold the deployments we are working on.

I've opened GERONIMO-3415 and 3416 to track this.

Comments welcome as always
