Sonatype is hosting a free webinar this week on Build Promotion with Nexus Professional. The webinar is hosted by Blaine Mincey, Senior Systems Engineer at Sonatype, and will be held on Thursday August 19 at 10:30 am PDT, 1:30pm EST.
The webinar is an introduction to the Build Promotion capabilities of Nexus Professional, the industry leading repository manager to help companies acquire, manage, and report on open source software artifacts in their software development projects.
If you release software, you will often need to test a release before deploying it to a production system or an externally accessible repository. For example, if you are developing a large, enterprise web application you may want to stage a release candidate to a production system and perform a series of rigorous tests before a release manager makes a decision to either return a system to development or deploy a system to production.
The Build Promotion feature in Nexus Professional allows an organization to create a temporary staging repository and to manage the promotion of artifacts from a staging repository to a release repository. This ability to create an isolated, release candidate repository that can be discarded or promoted makes it possible to support the decisions that go into certifying a release.

Sonatype is happy to announce the availability of Nexus 1.7. We’ve cut a new release for both Nexus Open Source and Nexus Professional. This post walks through the changes introduced to Nexus Open Source.
This Thursday Sonatype will be hosting a free webinar – Introduction to Nexus Professional. This webinar, lead by Sonatype author Tim O’Brien, gives an introduction to features of Nexus Professional focusing on staging. Staged software releases in Nexus Professional are the best way to enable your development team to push a release to an artifact repository such as Nexus while providing management and quality assurance with a way to test and approve a release before “burning” it to production.
