JBoss Moves to Central


September 7, 2011 By Terry Bernstein

Sonatype is excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with Red Hat to add the popular JBoss Community project components to the Central Repository.

Many JBoss projects, including JGroups, Javaassist, Netty, Hibernate, HornetQ, RestEasy, jBPM and Drools are now included in the Central Repository with more expected to be added in coming months. You’ll be able to easily locate and use these projects in a single, standard location.

The Sonatype team worked closely with JBoss Community project teams to evaluate legacy repositories, cleanup metadata and coalesce disparate content into a single site. Providing transparent, streamlined access to important project artifacts in the Central Repository further accelerates the development process and enables the JBoss Community to more rapidly provide its open source technologies to users.

The Central Repository is the industry-leading source for open source Java components used by over 40,000 development organizations daily. Sonatype has been working to expand the number of components available in Central.  By adding the JBoss projects and the Java.net projects announced last month, we expect the Central Repository to offer you access to more than 90 percent of all open source Java projects by the end of this year.
