Leave a comment

During the inspection of  several  sucessful Maven 3 build output, following SaxException catchs my eye:

[INFO] Parsing file:/home/skosmalla/.m2/repository/repository.xml
[Fatal Error] repository.xml:3:1: Premature end of file.

I didn’t find a solution with google for this problem. But I found a hint that the repository.xml  is generated by Maven at the  end of  a build.  I noticed that only the Maven builds had this SaxException that were built parallelly (Jenkins had two build processors)  and all Maven builds used the same M2 repository.  So I had the idea that the reason of this exception could be that two almost finished Maven build tried to generate the repository.xml.  I actived in every job the option Use private Maven repository and the SaxException didn’t turn up anymore.
