I'm currently toying around with Artifactory, a Maven repository manager built with Wicket. The first thing that struck me when I looked at the generated source (I am a sucker for really nice semantic HTML markup, always trying to learn new tricks), was an image that was loaded directly from a remote IP. Now I can understand JFrog to want to know how often their free open source Maven repository manager is used, but I figured letting them know just once was enough.

Fortunately it is not too difficult to remove the offending image from the templates. You have to edit the file:

  • artifactory\WEB-INF\classes\org\artifactory\webapp\wicket\BasePage.html

And remove the image from the footer. After a restart of your server you are using Artifactory without tracking.
