Maven 3.0.2 -U option does not update snapshot

Tag: maven Author: toni666 Date: 2011-02-21

Does anyone know why Maven 3.0.2 -U option does not update snapshot? The maven-metadata-repo.xml file gets updated, however, the SNAPSHOT jar doesn't. I've tried to put <updatePolicy>always</updatePolicy> in the settings.xml, doesn't work either.

Thanks, Jane

Are snapshots deployed using maven3?

Are you using Artifactory for your repository? If so, you may be running in to an issue I struggled with. It is caused by incorrect Artifactory configuration. In the Artifactory documentation, see the part about "Maven 3 Only Supports Unique Snapshots".


Oh, man - thank you! This one has been bugging me for a while.
