Christian Rigdon updated ARCHETYPE-220:

    Attachment: https.patch

Why not just allow https as an acceptable url for archetypeCatalog?

> I use that test:
> 1 - Create an "archetype-catalog.xml" and set it on your apache "htdocs" directory
>    Executing "mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeCatalog=http://localhost" works fine.
> 2 - Configure your apache to use certificates and allow SSL (port 443) to access to same
archetype catalog file
>    Executing "mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeCatalog=https://localhost" does not work.
(it shows default catalog)
>    It seems that stating with "https://" does not match with allowed parameter values
(local, internal, file:, http:)
> 3 - Anyway, try to redirect your working HTTP access to HTTPS (configure rewrite engine
on Apache) as workaround to access you SSL catalog.
>    Executing "mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeCatalog=http://localhost" (same as step
1) IS NOT WORKING!!!  (it shows empty catalog)
> There's no way to access an archetype-catalog.xml located on a SSL url ?
