This is an important notice for those of you that uses the java.net Maven2 repository, as we are moving a repository from one location to another.
The java.net Maven2 repository was set up about 2.5 years ago so that people hosting projects on java.net can push artifacts to a Maven repository.
This repository has grown in size to the point that it puts significant strain on the java.net system. So to improve the situation, we are moving the location of the repository from http://maven2-repository.dev.java.net/svn/maven2-repository/trunk/www/repository to http://maven2-repository.dev.java.net/svn/maven2-repository/trunk/repository (no more 'www' in the path.)
For those of you who publishes bits to this repository, you should change your POM to:
I updated the permissions on the maven2-repository project so that attempts to deploy to old locations will fail.
For those of you who downloads artifacts from this repository, be sure that you point to http://download.java.net/maven/2/, which we've been advertizing for quite some time now. As long as you do that, you shouldn't experience any problems (modulo possible glitches in the next several days as we tweak our infrastructure.)
See here for more information about maven2 repository on java.net , which shows how to access this repository, and here for more information about wagon-svn , which shows how to deploy artifacts to this repository.
My apologies for having to do this in anger without careful coordination and planning. But we all need to keep java.net faster and responsive, and I'm doing my part to achieve that.
