Non-HTTP based UpdateCenter URLs cause exception in plugin manager


    • 2.383

      If you use a non http based update center (e.g. file:// or other) then the UpdateCenter validation breaks.

      2022-12-09 09:31:50.119+0000 [id=107] WARNING o.e.j.s.h.ContextHandler$Context#log: Error while serving http://localhost:8080/manage/pluginManager/checkUpdateSiteUrl
      java.lang.ClassCastException: class sun.net.www.protocol.file.FileURLConnection cannot be cast to class java.net.HttpURLConnection (sun.net.www.protocol.file.FileURLConnection and java.net.HttpURLConnection are in module java.base of loader 'bootstrap')

      The UpdateCenter check should not assume all UC are HTTP based.

      Steps to reproduce

      1. download a valid update-center.json file and store it locally on the file system (/tmp/foo.json)
      2. start Jenkins
      3. goto the plugin manager
      4. in the Update Site URL enter a URL such as file:/tmp/foo.json

      Expected results

      Validation passes

      Actual results

      Stack trasce and angry Jenkins
