Listing of URL's under a given URL does not handle fully specified URL's thus failing resolution of dynamic versions with certain repositories. The following example is a directory listing returned by the Sonatype Nexus repository manager:
<title>Index of /nexus/content/repositories/releases/myorganization/mymodule/</title>
<h1>Index of /nexus/content/repositories/releases/myorganization/mymodule/</h1>
<a href="http://example.com/nexus/content/repositories/releases/myorganization/">Parent Directory

The current implementation fails as it only supports the URL as a path (no protocol or server/port).
A patch to add support for full URL's is attached.
