Repository Management with Nexus

14.4. Virtual OSGi Bundle Repositories

Nexus Professional can be configured to convert a traditional Maven repository into an OSGi Bundle repository using a virtual OBR repository. To configure a virtual OBR repository, create a new Virtual Repository in the Repositories administration area providing a Repository ID and Repository Name as well as the Source Nexus Repository ID setting the repository you want to expose as OBR. Finally set the Provider to OBR and click Save.

Figure 14.3, “Creating a Virtual OSGi Bundle Repository from a Maven Repository” provides a sample configuration used to create a virtual OBR repository that transforms the proxy repository for Maven Central into an OBR repository.
