Classic Search Retired on 31 December 2021⚓︎

Question⚓︎

Why can't I access https://search.maven.org/classic/ anymore?

Answer⚓︎

As of 31 December 2021, users will no longer be able to access https://search.maven.org/classic/. Any requests for that URL will be redirected to https://search.maven.org/, which has been available since we launched the site upgrade on 8 August 2018. In addition, any links to Classic Search on the current site will be removed.

Question⚓︎

Why did this happen?

Answer⚓︎

Classic search has been available since January 2011, and access logs show minimal usage of that site. Moreover, the current site maintains all the functionality from Classic Search while providing a better overall user experience.

Question⚓︎

Will my bookmarks still work? What about any code that relies on the REST API?

Answer⚓︎

Bookmarks will work if you simply remove "/classic" from the bookmarked URL. We have updated our documentation to reflect this. The REST API is unchanged. The original set of documented REST endpoints do not contain "/classic" and will continue to work even after Classic Search is retired.
