Repository Management with Nexus

1.1. Introduction

Nexus manages software "artifacts" required for development, deployment, and provisioning. If you develop software, Nexus can help you share those artifacts with other developers and end users. Maven’s central repository has always served as a great convenience for users of Maven, but maintaining your own repositories has always been recommended 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.
