Java.net Moves to Central


August 18, 2011 By Terry Bernstein

Sonatype is excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with Oracle to bring Java.net open-source projects to the Central Repository, the industry-leading source for open source Java components used by over 40,000 development organizations daily.

Java.net projects such as GlassFish and others are now included in the Central Repository, making it easier than ever for you to locate and download Java.net components without the workarounds or advanced configurations previously required. You’ll be able to leverage Java.net project assets to deliver applications faster, at a higher quality, and with less risk.

The Sonatype team worked closely with Oracle during the past year to evaluate existing Java.net legacy repositories, clean-up metadata and unite disparate content into a single site.   Java.net project owners can now easily automate and control synchronization of their project artifacts to the Central Repository through a hosted version of Sonatype Pro™ for Nexus donated by Sonatype to the project.
