The URL resolver can be used to resolve dependencies and/or for deployment of both regular artifacts and Ivy module files.
To publish or resolve artifacts to or from Artifactory, you need to configure a URL resolver with the pattern that matches your target repository layout for both Ivy and artifact files.
<!-- Authentication required for publishing (deployment). 'Artifactory Realm' is the realm used by Artifactory so don't change it. --> <credentials host="localhost" realm="Artifactory Realm" username="admin" passwd="password"/> <resolvers> <url name="artifactory-publish"> <!-- You can use m2compatible="true" instead of specifying your own pattern --> <artifact pattern= "http://localhost:8080/artifactory/ivy-local/[organization]/[module]/[revision]/[artifact]-[revision].[ext]"/> <ivy pattern="http://localhost:8080/artifactory/ivy-local/[organization]/[module]/[revision]/ivy-[revision].xml" /> </url> </resolvers>
The URL resolver uses HTML href analysis to learn about the available versions of a remote artifact. This is less reliable than using an IBiblio resolver, however it works well with remote Artifactory servers.
