Using Mirrors for Repositories

Technical, Technology

Creating a local mirror of maven repository often saves your developers a lot of time waiting for getting everything from a repository. Just by modifying the settings.xml can do, e.g.:

<settings>
...
<mirrors>
      <mirror>
         <id>UK</id>
         <name>UK Central</name>
         <url>http://uk.maven.org/maven2</url&gt;
         <mirrorOf>central</mirrorOf>
      </mirror>
   </mirrors>
   ...
</settings>
