How do you get around the problem that it is very difficult to get a url handler installed? Does this library work only when it is installed into the system class path?

From the Magic project we have spun off what we call Transit, which provides a
simple, flexible and powerful solution to artifact management and handling.

One of the most simple APIs one can imaging :o)
By putting the transit jar in system classpath, the most rudimentary use is;

  URL url = new URL( "artifact:jar:junit/junit#3.8.1" );

which will return a cached artifact, downloaded from configured resource hosts
out there.
The resource hosts can be of different types (i.e. not only the maven
organization), and the cache manager is also pluggable.
Downloads over https is supported, as well as server authorization, but we
still have not implemented certificate management and trust establishment,
but is in the pipeline.

Additional API levels support classloader management of generic application
plugins, or complete applications.
