Connecting to maven repos on the internet is not allowed inside our corporate firewall. We want to mirror the internet repositories within the corporate firewall so developers can use them.
Do we need to use maven to somehow retrieve packages of internet and host it internally. Is Archiva a gui front end to a maven repo or does it also have the ability to mirror internet repos?
I am a newbie to maven and archiva and am quite confused. Any clarification will be greatly appreciated.
