The contract to access artifacts/metadata in remote repositories. By implementing a
RepositoryConnectorFactoryand registering it with the repository system, an application can enable access to arbitrary remote repositories. It should be noted that a repository connector is powerful yet burdensome to implement. In many cases, implementing a
RepositoryLayoutFactorywill be sufficient and easier to access a custom remote repository.
