Subject [jira] [Commented] (MJARSIGNER-41) "maxtries" option for maven-jarsigner-plugin
Date Sun, 16 Jun 2019 11:29:00 GMT


Andrew Peter Marlow commented on MJARSIGNER-41:

I just came across the ticket but have raised another one (before I knew of this one), at, that covers the same ground. In it I
draw a parallel between the eclipse jarsigner plugin and what I would like to see for maven.
Looks like more work has been done on this ticket though, since it has a patch. Let's hope
it gets adopted.

> The actual jar signing is usually very reliable exercise in mathematics, which only fails
on external resources.
> But connecting to the "Time Stamp Authority" is not no so reliable.  When network issues
can cause intermittent failures in jar signing during our long middle of the night builds
it causes, out of size problems for our build process.
> I will present a patch which adds a "maxtries" parameter, to allow for repeated attempts.
 I considered but did not add a "retrydelay", as the overhead of the command process is a
non-trivial delay.  If whoever applies the patch feels "retrydelay" is desirable, they can
add it.
