Introduce module metadata verification
This commit introduces verification of metadata files.
For this, another refactoring of the `ModuleSource` concept
was required. Ironically, before this commit, `ModuleSource`
used to be available for serialization in the module metadata
serializer. However, they weren't used in practice, because
all the required data could be reconstructed from the caches.
In particular, there was this "contentHash" which, because
not properly serialized, was actually set as a field on the
component resolve metadata itself, instead of being part
of the module source.
Now, this commit reintroduces serialization of module sources
but takes a different approach by splitting the module sources
in two distinct categories:
- module sources which can be reconstructed from known data,
such as the repository name and repository url
- module sources which have to be serialized alongside component
metadata, because they can't be reconstructed from sources
The latter category includes this "contentHash", serialized with
the descriptor hash module source. It also includes the information
about _which_ actual descriptor file was used to generate the
binary module descriptor (e.g, the source POM, Ivy or module
metadata file). This information does _not_ belong to the module
component resolve metadata itself, so it belongs to its sources.
For this purpose, serialization of module sources has been updated
so that instead of using Java serialization, module sources need
to provide a custom serializer, called a Codec. Those codecs are
uniquely identified by an id which is just an integer. This is
done for performance optimization, in order to avoid to serialize
the name of the codec and have to load it dynamically. Instead,
Gradle knows about the full set of serializers (and there's no
way for a user to add more because in any case it would require
an update of the module metadata store format).
This makes it much more efficient to serialize module sources
(because we can now have an optimized encoder), but it also
permits reconstructing module sources from incomplete information.
In particular, the module source which describes the file from
which a component resolve metadata was sourced contains a link
to the actual file in the local artifact store. However, in order
to be relocatable, we _don't_ want this file path to be stored
in the metadata cache. This means that instead of storing the
path, we actually store the artifact identifier and the hash
of the descriptor so that we can, when loaded from cache, find
its location back.
Currently, metadata verification is enabled for all components.
It's not possible to disable verification of metadata.
