Sonatype Nexus Core

This is the Core codebase of Sonatype Nexus, aka "Nexus OSS".

Quick Links


To build this project you need recent version of Apache Maven (3.0.4+) and Sonatype Forge set up as mirror at least. Example Maven settings XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<settings xmlns=""
      <!-- This sends everything to Forge -->
      <!-- Enable snapshots for the built in central repo to direct -->
      <!-- all requests to nexus via the mirror -->
    <!-- make the profile active all the time -->
    <!-- define the sonatype plugin group, so the nexus plugins will work without typing the groupId -->

Note: As Maven "best practice", it is highly recommended to set up your own instance of Nexus and your local builds should use it instead of directly reaching out, fetch from remote. In such case, to properly proxy the forge URL above, be sure to add both release and snapshot proxy repositories for it, as it is actually a repository group having "mixed" repository policy.

Have fun,
