Repository Management with Nexus

Chapter 20. Nexus Plugins

Nexus Open Source and Nexus Professional are built using a plugin architecture, where each version includes a different set of plugins. You can install plugins available from the open source community, other vendors, or created by yourself in addition to the default plugins.

Nexus plugins can provide further functionality for the backend such as support for new repository formats, specific behavior for components, new scheduled tasks, new staging rules, and any other additional functionality as well as new user interface components and modifications. They can also group a number of these features together in one plugin.
