Class MavenDependencyResolver

All Implemented Interfaces:

public class MavenDependencyResolver
extends Object
implements DependencyResolver
This class is mainly responsible for fetching Android framework JAR dependencies from MavenCentral. Initially the fetching was being done with maven-ant-tasks, but that dependency become outdated and unmaintained and had security vulnerabilities.

There was an initial attempt to use maven-resolver for this, but that depends on a newer version of Apache Http Client that is not compatible with the one expected to be on the classpath for Android 16-18.

This uses only basic HttpURLConnection for fetching. In general using an HTTP client library here could create conflicts with the ones in the Android system.
