CSS 2008 - Tuesday - Update

Something I forgot to mention from Jason van Zyl's presentation was Nexus, the Maven repository manager. For a quick summary, see Matt Raible's post, but in brief, Nexus provides:

  • a single entry point to a number of repositories
  • fine grained security
  • indexing capabilities

If you try the m2Eclipse plugin, you can see the Nexus repository action as it is used to provide the index of archetypes when creating a new Maven project.

My opinion - looks like something worth investigating further.
