directory.xml

m2e discovery catalog URL is hardcoded in org.eclipse.m2e.internal.discovery.MavenDiscovery.PATH found in o.e.m2e.discovery bundle. To allow discovery catalog items to be compatible with some m2e versions but not all, each minor m2e version has different URL. Specifically,

discovery.xml can be changed from dev.eclipse.org or build.eclipse.org as ~/downloads/technology/m2e/discovery/directory.xml. It is not necessary to change discovery.xml unless you want to relocate or block catalog.

m2e discovery catalog

As of version 1.0.0 m2e discovery catalog content is hosted at https://repository.sonatype.org/content/repositories/forge-sites/m2e-discovery-catalog/. This repository is generated by m2e discovery catalog publishing job https://builds.sonatype.org/view/m2eclipse/job/m2eclipse-catalog/ and contains

  • catalog entry jar referenced from discovery.xml

The job execution has to be triggered manually and requires access to Sonatype build infrastructure.
