asm-3.1.jar; error in opening zip file

3:16:00 PM Posted by Satish Kumar , 1 comment
I encountered a Maven error caused by asm-3.1.jar. The error message was saying:

1
error: error reading /home/satish/.m2/repository/asm/asm/3.1/asm-3.1.jar; error in opening zip file

I found soon that asm-3.1.jar in .m2 was not a (corrupt) jar file but an HTML file whose content was as follows:

1

<html>
<head><title>301 Moved Permanently</title></head>
<body bgcolor="white">
<center><h1>301 Moved Permanently</h1></center>
<hr><center>nginx/0.6.39</center>
</body>
</html>

It seems 'mvn' cannot handle '301 Moved Permanently' properly. So, I downloaded asm-3.1.jar from the central repository.

cd ~/.m2/repository/asm/asm/3.1
wget http://search.maven.org/remotecontent?filepath=asm/asm/3.1/asm-3.1.jar
mv remotecontent\?filepath\=asm%2Fasm%2F3.1%2Fasm-3.1.jar asm-3.1.jar
rm -f asm-3.1.pom

Be sure to delete the old jar and .pom file.
