Nexus - replacement to Proximity

http://www.theserverside.com/news/thread.tss?thread_id=48946

Nexus is a robust Maven repository manager, created to provide reliable access to artifacts required for development and provisioning.

Maven's central repository has always served as a convenience for users of Maven, but it has always been recommended to maintain your own repositories to ensure stability within your organization.

Nexus 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.

(Jason van Zyl says that this is a twist of fate: Nexus might be the first Maven-related project with documentation in its first releases.)

Resources for Nexus include a chapter excerpt on Nexus by Tim O'Brien, getting started, downloading Nexus, and the mailing lists.
