Sonatype Nexus can easily be integrated with external systems due to the fact that all functionality is available via various REST API calls. On the other hand Nexus can be expanded by writing plugins for Nexus that customize it and add further functionality.
Part 2 — Part 3 of Component Management Strategy and DevOps — Part 4 Up Next Ok, I need a “blog post delivery tool chain” because part 3 in my DevOps series of blog posts is woefully behind my expected delivery date. It’s like a broken development process – I’m […]
In the Nexus Live event John Nagro and Tom McLaughlin from HubSpot detailed how they are using
Nexus as a repository for their development and release components. They
found that they need to be able to quickly create another virtual
machine as part of their build infrastructure to react to changes in
datacenter locations and other parameters.
We have been participating in the devopsdays events by presenting an ignite talk on how DevOps need to be aligned with how applications are constructed today – with open source components. The ignite presentation style is really interesting – you have 5 minutes to present 20 slides that advance automatically every 15 seconds. I started […]
Intro — Part 2 of Component Management Strategy and DevOps — Part 3 Up Next Ok, I’ll admit it. It’s another cliche. It’s really not a new concept at all – security experts have been talking about designing security in from the start for decades. So what’s different? Well, first of […]
