[GRADLE-562] documentation - accessing Maven password protected repositories Created: 21/Jul/09  Updated: 04/Jan/13  Resolved: 31/Aug/09

A common situation is that Maven repository is protected with basic authentication. This thread (by Xavier Hanin) describes how such repository can be accessed from Gradle: http://markmail.org/thread/7wgf7l7nxntyal7a

I think it is worth to add this information to the user guide - see the attached patch file.

If this is not only for Maven but also for Ivy, than this section should go somewhere else (right now I put it into "26.5.2. Maven repositories")

Hi Tomek,

FYI: The Ivy resolvers are the only Ivy types left which are part of our public API. It is our aim to replace them with Gradle domain classes before 1.0. That way we could also provide more convenient solutions for use cases like above.

Reopened to change the FixFor to 0.8 as we skip the 0.7.1 release.
