Some questions about syncing Maven repositories between two sites were recently asked on GetSatisfaction.com.
“We will be moving data centers and want to setup another Maven2 repo that is managed with Nexus OSS. We want both repositories to be online and read\writeable until we migrate all our environments to the new site. I have a few questions:
What is the best method for copying the repo to the new location?
What is the best method for keeping the two repos in sync? We want to minimize network bandwidth usage.”
The video below answers these questions, and offers multiple solutions:
Last week saw the release of Eclipse Indigo, which is the annual release of Eclipse projects. This year 62 projects were included in the release, including m2eclipse from Sonatype. However, since Indigo’s release there have been some questions as to where users can find m2eclipse.
Sonatype software developer Pascal Rapicault recently answered those questions on his blog, and we’re passing the information on to you.
At the time we made the decision regarding where to include m2e, the future of the m2e/WTP integration was uncertain. However, since then the situation has changed, with Fred Bricon being hired by JBoss in order to focus on this piece of technology.
Sonatype is happy to be helping the Hudson community with our support of the Hudson book.
The goal of the Hudson book is to be the authoritative source of documentation for Hudson users. We expect it to be available soon. Stay tuned to this blog for updates on the availability of the Hudson book.
Since the [Hudson] project lives on github it is pretty easy to follow the usual clone, branch, hack, commit, pull request sort of flow and thanks to Maven the build is as easy as .. surprise .. mvn clean install.
