The load on Central has been increasing steadily over the past few months. Coincidence or not, it started shortly after Maven: The Definitive Guide was translated into Chinese. First, httpd was running out of connections, then as we adjusted those higher, the load on the system was getting out of hand. Most recently we were […]
At Sonatype we’re always working on our training material and always looking for better ways to improve it. [Brian Fox][brian], [Bruce Snyder][bruce], and myself are going to be at ApacheCon this year to catch up with folks so we decided to provide a free one day training to gather feedback on the course material we […]
One of the most requested features of Nexus has been to bundle it as a war. Well, i just finished testing 1.1 as a war in Jetty and Tomcat and it looks good. So stay tuned, the 1.1 release is just around the corner and the war bundle will be included.
Bechtolsheim helped turn Sun, Granite, Google, VMWare and now Arista into some of the most successful startups ever. You could pick worse role models than Andreas von Bechtolsheim, when it comes to starting a company.
I created this video as a response to Martjin Dashorst’s post on why Javadoc isn’t distributed with Wicket. Given the ease with which you can browse Javadoc in m2eclipse, I think the days of cutting a “distribution” with aggregated Javadoc are behind us. While it is entirely possible to create aggregated Javadoc with Maven, I […]
Last week there was a question on the Neo4J dev list about troubleshooting a Maven build. I responded with a quick list of things to check.
In this blog entry, Matt Raible talks about Jason van Zyl’s presentation at the Colorado Software Summit. Matt’s post is a good overview of combining Nexus, m2eclipse, and Hudson to create a smoothly operating system to manage all the moving parts that make up a modern software engineering effort.
It’s been more than a year that I’m working for Sonatype (mainly on Nexus), the successor of Proximity. It was a great year, spent with cool people, and with great events like (in order as they happened): my daughter was born, we released Nexus 1.0 to general public. The events were originally planned to be […]
Inspiration ———– In Mercury we made an attempt to bring some contemporary ideas into Maven, make Maven not a monolithic build system, but rather a lego-like construction set that allows users to create systems they need. One set of building blocks in particular – implementation of the idea that dependencies is a universal commodity, that […]
I’ve been using [Markdown] for a while now, but to date embedding code was a bit of a pain with Pebble and Marsedit. Sonatype has switched over to using WordPress and I’ve installed a couple plugins to make working with Markdown and syntax-highlighted code very easy. The first plugin is [Michael Fortin's] very cool [PHP […]
