  • supports pooling using the same above logic
  • supports extraction of zip,tar,gz,jar,war,ear files
  • detects type of archive file based on file name (i.e URL must end with zip,tar,tar.gz,jar,war,ear)
  • supports basic authentication
  • supports connection through proxy
  • supports running on slave

Note: If the type is unknown the plugin will simply copy the file to workspace

Known Issues

  • Jenkins server needs to be restarted when username and password is changed. This is because of JDK caching of credentials bug.
