Does Nexus Pro Support Ant + Ivy Builds? Yes it does.

Java developers adapting an existing Ant build to dependency management often turn to Ivy. Here’s an evaluation guide for Nexus Professional using two, very simple Ant+Ivy projects. If you are evaluating Nexus Professional, or if you are just looking for some sample projects that configure an Ant + Ivy build to use a repository take a look at this guide. These two projects have build.xml, ivy.xml, and ivysettings.xml files that demonstrate the simplest case of configuring an Ivy build to:

  • Download dependencies from a Nexus Repository Group with Ivy
  • Deploy an Artifact to a Nexus Snapshot Repository from Ivy
  • Staging an Artifact to a Nexus Staging Repository from Ivy

Download Nexus Professional, and then get the eval guide.

Update 2013-05: The evaluation guide has been updated and is now available in HTML and PDF format.
