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.
