During the October 2014 broadcast of Nexus Live we were able to catch up with Gene Kim and Josh Corman to find out what’s in store for the DevOps Enterprise Summit in the Bay Area at the end of the month. We also took a quick look at TheNEXUS, the new community site for Nexus, […]
Continuing our commitment to the open source community we are taking Nexus OSS to another level. After adding NuGet support in Nexus 2.9 for FREE in Nexus OSS (a long time paid feature of Nexus Professional) our engineering team is at it again. I remember when we created the issue tracker ticket to support npm in Nexus over a year ago. Node.js development and usage of npm registries was on the horizon and making its way into companies more and more. Tools like Grunt have only gotten more traction since then.
The NuGet package manager has become the standard for developing software on the Microsoft platform which includes.NET and the NuGet Gallery that has emerged as a large public open source package repository. Sonatype Nexus, on the other hand, is the standard repository or component manager software running on servers from small open source projects and teams to multi-national Fortune 500 companies.
The Nexus development team at Sonatype is pleased to announce the release of the first milestone build (M1) of Nexus 3. This release is a technology preview covering the open source version, Nexus OSS, focused specifically on the new user interface. Nexus Pro will be covered in the upcoming M2 release.

RebelLabs recently put out their Java Tools and Technologies Landscape report and we were very pleased to see Nexus chosen as the repository manager of choice by 64% of developers. We saw this same preference carry over in our own recent Open Source Development survey, where 49% of respondents indicated they used Nexus as their local component repository manager. Which brought us to analyze these market trends further .By digging into the log data from the Central Repository, we were able to capture more compelling proof that indeed, Nexus holds a significant portion of the repository manager marketplace and for good reason.
With the recent release of Nexus 2.8, we’ve updated the online documentation, Repository Management with Nexus (2.8). The most recent addition to the documentation has been the inclusion of a comprehensive search. For a book this size, this is an essential resource for finding what you need. Give it a spin.
In today’s Nexus Live Broadcast, Damon Edwards and his team from SimplifyOps introduced us to RunDeck, open source software that helps automate routine operational procedures in data center or cloud environments. He is seeing Nexus in many of his enterprise environments, so I thought it would be interesting to see an overview the product and […]
Another informative and well-presented RebelLabs survey has hit the streets. Their 2014 Java Tools and Technologies Landscape report was just released and hats off to them for ‘their better than ever response rate’ and their good will for charity donations from each completed survey response. This year’s survey covers more than a dozen different tool/technology segments within the Java industry.
In this segment of the Nexus 2 Minute Challenge, we’re going to look at the Nexus User Token feature. The user token relates to the username and password that is used to connect to Nexus. In this example, there is a Maven .xml file where the username and password is in clear text. This is […]
