Thank you to everyone who attended Sonatype’s recent webinar, Improving Developer Productivity with Sonatype Professional. If you were unable to attend the webinar recording is now available.
In a recent survey, 80% of developers, managers and architects said lack of integration between their tools was a huge efficiency drain. As teams standardize on tools like Maven, Hudson, and Nexus integration headaches can be real productivity killers.
View this webinar to learn how Sonatype Professional can help your team spend less time chasing problems and more time delivering code.
Sonatype founder and CTO Jason van Zyl will be hosting a free webinar on the future of Hudson next week.
Hudson is a continuous integration (CI) server that helps you check-out source code, build and test your project, publish the results and communicate the results to team members. We’ve been working to make it easier to extend Hudson, to reduce the effort required to write a Hudson plugin, and to put in a new foundation for the next level of Hudson interoperability and performance. We’re excited about the work that has been done and the work yet to come. The benefits of these changes include better leveraging of industry standards, increased performance and stability, and tight integration with Maven 3 that provides greater visibility into running builds. Come to learn more about Hudson CI and future plans for the project.

In Maven 3.0.3, we introduced some improvements to the way plugin goals can be configured. This post summarizes these improvements and gives some examples of how Maven plugin configuration has been enhanced. We’ve focused on making improvements that will reduce the friction of plugin configuration for both plugin developers and Maven end-users.
First, a general tip for users interested in using these enhancements in POMs: use the requireMavenVersion rule from the Maven Enforcer Plugin and required Maven version 3.0.3. This will save other team members from running into strange build failures due to plugin misconfiguration if they are still using previous Maven versions. Likewise, plugin authors that take advantage of these enhancements should properly declare the Maven prerequisite in the plugin POM.
EclipseCon 2011 is approaching quickly, but it’s not too late to make plans to head to Santa Clara, California this month!
EclipseCon is the conference for anyone involved in Eclipse. As a proud member of the Eclipse Foundation, Sonatype is looking forward to another year of great talks, tutorials and BOF’s. We will be hosting a number of extended workshops as well as talks in the Cypress Room all day on Tuesday, March 22, 2011.
Sonatype founder Jason van Zyl will be giving a presentation on Next Generation Development Infrastructure with Maven, m2eclipse, Nexus & Hudson.
All development organizations eventually converge on a set of tools to reduce costs, lower onboarding time, and leverage knowledge in strong communities to create standard processes. To this end we see in many organizations the emergence of a standard development stack consisting of Maven, m2eclipse, Nexus & Hudson. In this talk, Jason van Zyl, Founder of the Apache Maven project, will discuss the future of Maven and specifically Maven 3.x, the rapidly approaching m2eclipse 1.0 release, the recent Nexus 1.9 release and roadmap, and emerging tools such as Maven Shell and Polyglot Maven. Sonatype itself leverages this stack on a daily basis and this discussion will focus not only on the tools individually, but how they can work together to create a best practices approach to building and delivering your software in your organization.
