In March, Manfred Moser and I introduced the concept of a “Nexus 2 Minute Challenge“, where I would ask Manfred to accomplish a specific task in Nexus in less than 2 minutes. The series was an immediate hit with over 1300 views within the first month. Here’s the inaugural video, Enable Component Version Discovery, from […]
Last week, I joined the Sonatype engineering team at the yearly summit where we got together and discussed the future roadmap for Nexus and CLM, talk with engineers who are doing the hands-on work on the projects and in general got caught up with each other. It’s always good to get this kind of face-to-face […]

In the Nexus Live event John Nagro and Tom McLaughlin from HubSpot detailed how they are using
Nexus as a repository for their development and release components. They
found that they need to be able to quickly create another virtual
machine as part of their build infrastructure to react to changes in
datacenter locations and other parameters.
CONTROL, ENFORCEMENT, APPROVALS, POLICIES These concepts run counter to fast, agile, based-development. These words make developers cringe, they are “4 letter words”. Could it be that the problems with these concepts is not what they are trying to accomplish, but how they are implemented? They are intended to ensure that applications developers create are trusted, […]
Like many organizations, you have turned to Nexus as a repository for your components. Since that is going so well, you may be thinking adding controls that turn Nexus into a Golden Repository. It’s natural to try to manage components by restricting usage to only those components approved by your security, licensing and architecture teams. […]

A majority of open source projects including organizations such as Apache Software Foundation, Google , Github and many more take advantage of the free hosting via the Sonatype Open Source Software Repository Hosting OSSRH. The release automation for […]
