NAME

Maven::Agent - A base agent for working with maven

VERSION

version 1.14

SYNOPSIS

    use Maven::Agent;

    my $agent = Maven::Agent->new();

Or if you need to configure your own LWP

    my $lwp = LWP::UserAgent->new();
    $lwp->env_proxy();
    my $agent = Maven::Agent->new(agent => $lwp);

    my $maybe_artifact = $agent->resolve(
        'javax.servlet:servlet-api:2.5');
    if ($maybe_artifact) {
        # use it
    }

    my $artifact = $agent->resolve_or_die(
        'javax.servlet:servlet-api:2.5');

    my $servlet_api_jar = $agent->download('javax.servlet:servlet-api:2.5');

    $agent->download('javax.servlet:servlet-api:2.5',
        to => '/path/to/some/directory');

DESCRIPTION

The default agents for working with Maven artifacts.

CONSTRUCTORS

new([%options])

Creates a new agent. %options is passed through to "new([%options])" in Maven::Maven.

METHODS

download($artifact, [%options])

Downloads $artifact and returns the path to the downloaded file. The current options are:

to

The path to download the artifact to. If the path is a directory, the download filename will be artifactId.packaging. Defaults to a temporary location. If it is the temporary location, the type of the return value is actually a blessed object that overrides the "" operator so that it behaves like a string path. This allows the temporary file to be cleaned up when the object goes out of scope.

get_maven

Returns the Maven::Maven object.

is_local($artifact)

Returns a truthy value if $artifact is found in the local repository. This method expects $artifact to have already been resolved.

resolve($artifact, [%parts])

Will attempt to resolve $artifact. $artifact can be either an instance of Maven::Artifact or a coordinate string of the form groupId:artifactId[:packaging[:classifier]]:version If resolution was successful, a new Maven::Artifact will be returned with its uri set. Otherwise, undef will be returned. If %parts are supplied, their values will be used to override the corresponding values in $artifact before resolution is attempted.

resolve_or_die($artifact)

Calls resolve, and, if resolution was successful, the new $artifact will be returned, otherwise, croak will be called.
