Repository Management with Nexus

14.3. Hosted OSGi Bundle Repositories

Nexus can host an OSGi Bundle Repository, providing you with a way to publish your own OBR bundles. To create a hosted OBR repository access the Repositories view from the Views/Repositories submenu and click the Add.. button above the list of repositories and choose Hosted Repository from the drop-down of repository types.

In the New Hosted Repository configuration tab, supply a Repository ID and a Repository Name and select OBR as the Provider.

Then enter the URL to the remote repository OBR XML as the Remote Storage Location and click Save.

Figure 14.2, “Creating a Hosted OSGi Bundle Repository” provides some sample configuration used to create a hosted OBR repository.
