Repository - Artifactory

Hi

We store our application's components in a repository called Artifactory. Is it possible for InstallAnywhere to extract the components from the repository rather than read them directly from disk?

Thanks

Andy

Re: Repository - Artifactory

Well, honestly, this is the first time I hear about Artifactory, even if they label themselves as "the world's most advanced repository manager." The thing is, be that CVS, SVN, Perforce, GIT, to name only a few that are a little more familiar, personally I don't know any build tool that would extract everything from the repository... So if there is no CVS, SVN, Perforce, GIT etc. direct access support in IA there is definitely none for Artifactory... Which makes me wonder: what would be the scenario in which the sources cannot be extracted before building the installer, I mean you store everything in the repository, even the binary products of the build?!?

We use Artifactory to install build results and other dependant stuff and svn to store the source code.

We're building a large library of JAVA web services, which are all dependant on an in house framework.

We use Maven to do the build and it will look in the Artifactory for any dependancies (JAR files, classes etc) that are not on the build machine or have been updated since the last build. The build results are also stored in the Artifactory so that anythiing dependant upon them has instant access to them.

I'm not surprised that IA doesn't have access to the Artifactory, but it would be nice if it did as it would be able to get the latest build results automatically...

Isn't there any way of exporting the build results from Artifactory?

Yes - but we were wondering if the Install builder could do it...

Re: Repository - Artifactory

Nope, it cannot. I'm really interested to hear if you manage to find any installer that does it.
