Welcome to the first weekly roundup of blog posts and tweets mentioning Nexus, Maven, and other projects that Sonatype developers contribute to.


The importance of Central
"One of the selling points of maven is it's dependency mechanism. You say what code you need, and maven makes sure it's there for you. The magic behind this is called central. It's a phenomenal collection of software (much akin to Perl's CPAN)."

  • Automated creation of the Nexus index
  • Web based artifact search"
