      Description

      Eclipse 4.5 has added support for XZ compressed content files and P2 repositories in Artifactory doesn’t appear to know that the content.xml.xz file is a ‘table of contents’ and so needs to be refreshed from the remote repository at the same sort of frequency as a content.jar file.

      What this means is that Eclipse 4.4.x (which only understands ‘content.jar’) sees the correct content of an eclipse repository (because Artifactory is delegating the call through, and Eclipse 4.4 only knows about content.jar files) but 4.5.x doesn’t see the updates (because the 4.5.x client is looking for content.xml.xz, and this hasn’t been refreshed).

      Artifactory P2 repository needs to refresh and update the content.xml.xz files at the same frequency as the content.jar file.
