Nexus: Maven Repository Manager

As quoted from the website, Nexus is a powerful and robust Maven repository manager, created to provide reliable access to artifacts required for development and provisioning. Maven’s central repository has always served as a great convenience for users of Maven, but it has always been recommended to maintain your own repositories to ensure stability within your organization. Nexus greatly simplifies the maintenance of your own internal repositories and access to external repositories. With Nexus you can completely control access to, and deployment of, every artifact in your organization from a single location.



  • Smallest Memory footprint of all Repository Managers (28mb vs 128mb)
  • Runs out-of-the-box. Unpack it and go!
  • Rich UI using the amazing ExtJS library. Take a look at tue public instance.
  • Full REST APIs made possible using Restlet.
  • Full integration with Eclipse using m2eclipse.
  • Repository RSS feeds for recently deployed and cached artifacts.
  • Full indexing and searching. This also includes searching proxied repositories by integrating Nexus indices hosted by the remotely proxied repositories.
  • Tool to convert Proximity configurations to Nexus configurations.
  • No database required. Nexus uses the filesystem with Lucene and that’s it. Amazing things are still possible.
