Apache Archiva is a maven artifact repository manager. We use it to store artifacts (libraries) used by the maven/java build for different projects. It helps with storing the entire organization's libraries at a centralized location and acts as a proxy for all the open-source repositories. We have hundreds of builds running almost every hour. Using Apache Archiva has helped with preserving valuable bandwidth for the organization. It also allows us to do security audits on the artifacts in use. Different teams are able to share the libraries (components) with each other thus speeding up the software development.

  • It allows exchange of artifacts/libraries between different teams.
