I'm working on a repository concept that is very similar to Maven's.

Of course, it would be nice if I could leverage Maven for this. Are there API's in Maven or elsewhere that can be used programmatically?

I want to do things like:



So far, I've just played with Maven's Wagon stuff.

Any pointers, links, etc. are appreciated.

Have you had a look at the Maven API docs/downloaded the source code? I'm not sure if the Maven team created an API set for this sort of usage...

Yes, I've been playing around with it. I haven't found what I'm looking for, but I'm not done going over it yet.

Thanks.

If you don't get a further response here I highly recommend joining the maven users and developers mailing list, both a very active and the Maven devs will probably have better insight than most visitors to this site (your Q is quite advanced).
