Interface RepositoryConnectorFactory

A factory to create repository connectors. A repository connector is responsible for uploads/downloads to/from a certain kind of remote repository. When the repository system needs a repository connector for a given remote repository, it iterates the registered factories in descending order of their priority and calls newInstance(RepositorySystemSession, RemoteRepository) on them. The first connector returned by a factory will then be used for the transfer.
  • Method Summary

    Modifier and Type

    newInstance(org.eclipse.aether.RepositorySystemSession session, org.eclipse.aether.repository.RemoteRepository repository)
    Tries to create a repository connector for the specified remote repository.
  • Method Details

    • newInstance

      RepositoryConnector newInstance(org.eclipse.aether.RepositorySystemSession session, org.eclipse.aether.repository.RemoteRepository repository) throws org.eclipse.aether.transfer.NoRepositoryConnectorException
      Tries to create a repository connector for the specified remote repository. Typically, a factory will inspect RemoteRepository.getProtocol() and RemoteRepository.getContentType() to determine whether it can handle a repository.
      session - The repository system session from which to configure the connector, must not be null. In particular, a connector must notify any RepositorySystemSession.getTransferListener() set for the session and should obey the timeouts configured for the session.
      repository - The remote repository to create a connector for, must not be null.
      The connector for the given repository, never null.
      org.eclipse.aether.transfer.NoRepositoryConnectorException - If the factory cannot create a connector for the specified remote repository.
    • getPriority

      float getPriority()
      The priority of this factory. When multiple factories can handle a given repository, factories with higher priority are preferred over those with lower priority.
