move to 1.4-M2 as using simple HttpUrlConnection works.
Are you sure we need a new REST service for this? How would it differ from the webdav?
I think it should work, I'm writing a pure java code based on the HttpURLConnection.
adding a rest services for that ?
I mean we can easily to upload the jar file by using this lib without maven.what we need to do is just give the necessary informations, for example, groupId, artifactId, repository URL, userName, password, version and so on.
