In this video, I introduce the LDAP integration and I provide a demonstration of the LDAP integration using the default database from the Apache Directory LDAP server. Nexus Professional’s LDAP integration is highly configurable, watch this video to get a sense of how Nexus supports User and Group mapping.
Here’s a video that discusses the benefits of Hosted Repositories and how Nexus Professional’s Staging Suite introduces the concept of the managed release. With the Staging Suite, you can configure filters that will automatically intercept a deployment to a Hosted Repository. Once the staging suite intercepts these artifacts, they will be placed in a temporary staging repository and a QA or administrative user will be sent a notification that a staged release is ready for approval or disposal. This mechanism allows a QA group to certify a release, once a release has been certified it can be promoted, and the contents of the temporary staging repository will be published to the hosted repository.
If you are looking for the easiest way to search for artifacts in the Central Maven Repository, go to http://repository.sonatype.org. Sonatype maintains a publi instance of Nexus that can be used to search for artifacts by GAV (groupId, artifactId, version) coordinates, Class Name, or Checksum. Here’s a brief demonstration of the search capabilities on http://repository.sonatype.org.
