Would like to understand the need to assign a blob in group repository.
Say I have the following blob store and repository.
Blob Store: mvn, mvn-group
Repository: maven-proxy, maven-hosted, maven-group
maven-group is setup to contain both
hosted blob store are assigned to mvn. And
maven-group is assigned to mvn-group.
A gradle Java project point to the
maven-group URL. So whenever a project build is triggered, nexus will store a cache (copy) of the artifact (.jar) in mvn blob store which is inside the directory
\blobs\mvn. Hence, in this case, when will
mvn-group blob store be populated or used?
Since the download will actually proxy through the
maven-proxy and store in mvn blob store. So I was thinking what is the use of specifying the group blob store.
Hope I am making myself clear, let me know if I didn’t. Or maybe I understand wrongly how it is supposed to work.
