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.

Sonatype is excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with Oracle to bring Java.net open-source projects to the Central Repository, the industry-leading source for open source Java components used by over 40,000 development organizations daily.
Java.net projects such as GlassFish and others are now included in the Central Repository, making it easier than ever for you to locate and download Java.net components without the workarounds or advanced configurations previously required. You’ll be able to leverage Java.net project assets to deliver applications faster, at a higher quality, and with less risk.
The Sonatype team worked closely with Oracle during the past year to evaluate existing Java.net legacy repositories, clean-up metadata and unite disparate content into a single site. Java.net project owners can now easily automate and control synchronization of their project artifacts to the Central Repository through a hosted version of Sonatype Pro™ for Nexus donated by Sonatype to the project.

Maven Central has become an increasingly important resource for the development community at large. We’ve put several efforts forward earlier this year to help improve the content quality and to reduce the time required to get artifacts into the repository. These have matured over time and are now automatically validating artifacts. These processes are documented for Maven Projects and 3rd Party Artifacts.
To improve the experience for users in Europe, Sonatype has provisioned a new official repository in the United Kingdom. This is more than a mere mirror of Central, this system is updated in lockstep with the systems here in the US, and is managed and monitored 24×7 by Contegix, the same team watching over the US repositories. The new repository consists of two fully redundant systems running in parallel to provide complete fail-over capacity.
In addition to the new repository, we have taken several steps to improve and further secure Central itself:

Stackoverflow: Building a Maven project that has mixed Java/Scala source
Even since I stumbled upon the first Lift tutorials, I’ve been impressed with the work that has been put into the Maven Scala plugin. This question and answer is a snapshot of the Maven community. More and more people are chiming in to help, and we’re seeing fewer trolls as the tools and the ecosystem around Maven continue to improve. Note that someone references our (still in development Maven Handbook) in this answer.
We certainly keep an eye on Maven-related questions on Stackoverflow, and we’ve been noticing an increase in m2eclipse questions. Here are more questions from Stackoverflow…

Mountain View, CA–September 15, 2009–Chariot Solutions and Sonatype are jointly announcing the fifth annual Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise Conference and Sonatype Maven Meetup, to be held at the Sheraton Society Hill in downtown Philadelphia. The two events will be held consecutively, with Sonatype Maven Meetup opening its doors on April 6th, followed by the Emerging Technologies Conference on April 7-8.
Sonatype Maven Meetup will focus on technologies centered around development infrastructure, offering talks and workshops led by core contributors and package maintainers. Sessions in two tracks will cover tools as the Apache Maven build and release manager, Hudson continuous integration engine, Nexus repository manager, Sonar quality server and other technologies widely used by software developers around the world.
