Maven 3 webinar next week

Sonatype will be hosting a free webinar on Maven 3 next week. Maven 3 is the best version of Maven yet. Maven 3 is faster, has been optimized for IDE use, and is fully backward compatible with Maven 2. Please join us as Jason van Zyl discusses Maven 3, the future of Java Build Infrastructures.

New official Maven Central repository in Europe

Maven Central has become an increasingly important resource for the development community at large. We've put several efforts forward earlier this year to help improve the content quality and to reduce the time required to get artifacts into the repository. These have matured over time and are now automatically validating artifacts. These processes are documented for Maven Projects and 3rd Party Artifacts.

To improve the experience for users in Europe, Sonatype has provisioned a new official repository in the United Kingdom. This is more than a mere mirror of Central, this system is updated in lockstep with the systems here in the US, and is managed and monitored 24x7 by Contegix, the same team watching over the US repositories. The new repository consists of two fully redundant systems running in parallel to provide complete fail-over capacity.

In addition to the new repository, we have taken several steps to improve and further secure Central itself:

Maven 3 offers "better stability and performance"

The Sonatype team is thrilled about the release of Maven 3.0, and it seems we're not the only one. Alex Handy from Software Development Times writes about the not only the improvments and new features that the user will see with Maven 3.0, but also about the changes made behind the scenes that will improve Maven's performance and integration down the line.

Continuous Compilation in FlexMojos

I've got some great information to pass on. One of our open source contributors Joa Ebert contributed some code to enable a very useful feature in FlexMojos 4.0. FlexMojos 4.0 will ship with a new feature for rapid application development and good old Flash experiments.

Apache Maven 3.0 has landed!

Apache Maven 3.0 has landed, but it's really just the beginning. The work that Sonatype has done to bring Maven 3.0 to fruition is substantial. It's been hard, it's taken a lot of Sonatype's time and resources, but we're glad we did the work and we see this as a new beginning for Maven. We will, of course, keep working on Maven but with the release of Maven 3.0 Sonatype will, at least for a little while, turn an eye to Maven's Eclipse-focused cousins, the Maven Shell, Polyglot Maven, and Hudson.

Sonatype reference books online

If you love Sonatype’s online books, it may be time to update your bookmarks! Sonatype offers online books covering Maven, Nexus Professional, and Developing with Maven and Eclipse.
