With our launch of Insight, we’ve been talking to a lot of customers and prospective customers about effective management of open source-based development. At this point, we’ve heard it all. But some trends have emerged. One thing is clear — virtually everyone wants to use more open source in their development processs, but realizes the need to effectively manage its use. With thousands of components in use across their organizations, many people struggle with where to start. With this in mind, we’ve put together a ‘top 10 list” to get things started. You’ll find a summary of the entire list here.
We’ll be exploring each item in more depth through a series of five blog posts. But for now, let’s start at the beginning with understanding your current usage of open source components. Continue reading
Sonatype is excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with Red Hat to add the popular JBoss Community project components to the Central Repository.
Many JBoss projects, including JGroups, Javaassist, Netty, Hibernate, HornetQ, RestEasy, jBPM and Drools are now included in the Central Repository with more expected to be added in coming months. You’ll be able to easily locate and use these projects in a single, standard location.
The Sonatype team worked closely with JBoss Community project teams to evaluate legacy repositories, cleanup metadata and coalesce disparate content into a single site. Providing transparent, streamlined access to important project artifacts in the Central Repository further accelerates the development process and enables the JBoss Community to more rapidly provide its open source technologies to users.
The Central Repository is the industry-leading source for open source Java components used by over 40,000 development organizations daily. Sonatype has been working to expand the number of components available in Central. By adding the JBoss projects and the Java.net projects announced last month, we expect the Central Repository to offer you access to more than 90 percent of all open source Java projects by the end of this year.

We’ve enhanced the leading repository manager to help you develop better software faster. Nexus 1.9.2, recently released, adds a number of new features.
Stop Running Tasks
You can stop running processes immediately and no longer have to wait for them to complete. This is quite useful for recovering from high load situations. Stopping a running process is easy — just select the process and click on the cancel button (see Figure 1). You can also delete tasks without waiting for them to finish. Delete will automatically stop the process and then delete it.
Improved Maven 2 Support
You’ll get improved support for environments with both Maven 2 and Maven 3 clients. Nexus now suppresses Maven 3 metadata automatically when communicating with Maven 2 clients. This improvement allows you to use such mixed environments successfully.
Enhanced User Information
Sonatype Pro for Nexus customers can better audit who uses each Nexus server with usage information that includes userid and user agent.
