Repository Management with Nexus

3.1. Nexus Prerequisites

Nexus Open Source and Nexus Professional only have one prerequisite, a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) compatible with Java 7. Nexus is most often run with the JRE that is bundled with a Java Development Kit (JDK) installation, and it can be run with Oracle’s JDK for Java 7. To download the Oracle JDK, go to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html . At a minium Java 7u2 is required, but we recommend to use the latest available version.
