Interface LocalRepositoryManagerFactory

All Known Implementing Classes:
EnhancedLocalRepositoryManagerFactory, SimpleLocalRepositoryManagerFactory

A factory to create managers for the local repository. A local repository manager needs to keep track of artifacts and metadata and manage access. When the repository system needs a repository manager for a given local repository, it iterates the registered factories in descending order of their priority and calls newInstance(RepositorySystemSession, LocalRepository) on them. The first manager returned by a factory will then be used for the local repository.
