- Currently the off-line maven repository for
FSW 6.0.0does not ship all the other
EAP artifactswhich are added as transitive dependencies to many
FSWartifacts. These EAP dependencies need to exist in the
FSW repositoryitself. Why doesn't
Red Hatjust put these
EAPartifacts as well in there with
FSWrepository too? Why should users separately download repository artifacts of different product to resolve transitive dependencies from one product's artifacts?
- Manually downloading the dependent artifacts from separate product is not an option on a longer term since this generates incalculable effort in the future to many users. Even the on-line repository of JBoss Maven artifacts is not reliable as the repository is named with
techpreviewin its name, even if it contains only stable artifacts. Thus it gives a sense of unreliability in user's mind.
FSWdocumentation  clearly states that the
techpreviewrepository is not supported for production environment.
Important The set of online remote repositories is a technology preview source of components. As such, it is not in scope of patching and is supported only for use in development environment. Using the set of online repositories in production environment is a potential source of security vulnerabilities and is therefore not a supported use case. For more information see https://access.redhat.com/site/maven-repository.
There are many users who use only supported software , which are downloaded from supported on-line sources (e.g. fully supported maven repository on-line location), and which are available from secured websites too. The current
techpreview repository is only available through
HTTP way. Hence, in future these maven repository should be well protected by
HTTPS as well.
