seems to break CI builds by returning "No files found" with HTTP Status 200

It seems that breaks CI builds by returning HTTP 200 for “No Files found.” By doing so intermediate caches like artifactory store this HTML-page instead of continuing the search at other repositories.

Can you give an example URL please.

The URL where I detected this problem was - in our project there is a dependency to jnlp and the gradle-based CI build tries to fetch the pom from the URL above. I think that should reply with a HTTP Status 404 and not with 200 in this case.

Fixed. Thanks for the report.
