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.

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.
Stay tuned to the Sonatype blog for updates on Sonatype’s talks and presentations at EclipseCon 2011. And for the latest news and updates from the Sonatype team, follow us on Twitter @SonatypeCM.
Two weeks ago we proposed that [Hudson plugin authors be able to use dependency injection] through the JSR-330 standard. This change makes it easier to write Hudson plugins without having to dig into Hudson internals, it provides greater separation between plugins and Hudson core, and it makes it much easier to test plugins without having to bring along core Hudson objects.
These changes are now [in the core of Hudson]. Even though JSR330 can now be used by plugin authors these changes should, in no way, affect plugin authors using the existing API. Since this question came up on the mailing list, I’ll give a short description of how it works here. The JSR330 integration allows you to take advantage of JSR330, if you wish, by using an alternative plugin strategy. Our new plugin strategy interoperates with the existing, classic plugin strategy. Sonatype’s Hudson Professional distribution actually ships with a mixture of JSR330 plugins and classic plugins and we find this works quite well. We tried to make it easier to use new strategies for wiring up plugin, and [Stuart McCulloch has offered this strategy on the Jenkins development list] and it appears to have been absorbed as part of [JENKINS-8897].
Development teams often struggle to achieve the full promise of agile methodologies using their current tools. The Sonatype team wants to help change that.
Sonatype Professional is a suite of next generation development infrastructure software that extends the Maven ecosystem to improve both the speed and quality of Java development projects. Sonatype Professional integrates the m2eclipse, Nexus Professional, and Hudson-based continuous integration and adds unique developer onboarding functionality to get you productive fast.
Attend our webinar – Improving Developer Productivity with Sonatype Professional – to learn how this suite can help transform your software development process.
