archetype:generate with specified remote archetypeCatalog falls back to internal catalog



    • Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • 3.0.0
    • 3.0.1
    • Generator
    • None
    • Mac OS X 10.11.6, Apache Maven 3.2.3


      We were surprised to find out that our archetype was "suddenly" not working anymore. It turns out it was the release of org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:3.0.0 from 12/Feb/17 that was the culprit.

      When running:
      mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:3.0.0:generate -DarchetypeCatalog=<remote-catalog-url-from-our-nexus> we end up with the plugin falling back to the internal catalog:

      Choose archetype:
      1: internal -> org.apache.maven.archetypes:maven-archetype-archetype (An archetype which contains a sample archetype.)

      8: internal -> org.apache.maven.archetypes:maven-archetype-site (An archetype which contains a sample Maven site which demonstrates
            some of the supported document types like APT, XDoc, and FML and demonstrates how
            to i18n your site. This archetype can be layered upon an existing Maven project.)
      9: internal -> org.apache.maven.archetypes:maven-archetype-site-simple (An archetype which contains a sample Maven site.)
      10: internal -> org.apache.maven.archetypes:maven-archetype-webapp (An archetype which contains a sample Maven Webapp project.)
      Choose a number or apply filter (format: [groupId:]artifactId, case sensitive contains):

      Version 2.4 works as expected (the archetype catalog exists under given URL and can be downloaded).
