Overall Satisfaction with Sonatype Nexus Platform

We use the Nexus platform to keep track of our built test and production binaries and to make it easy to access third-party libraries used by our system at compile time. It’s used on daily basis in all our development teams in the organization. Related to third-party libraries, Nexus is used to ensure we have a cached version in-house in case the online source disappears.
  • Keep track of built artifacts.
  • Makes it possible to browse available artifacts.
  • Search and find new libraries and their latest version.
  • User interface could be improved.
  • Integration with development IDE could be improved.
  • Stability
  • Artifact repository
  • Linux support
  • Improves quality
  • Ensures we can build old versions.
  • Improves productivity.
Some reasons for going with the Sonartype Nexus Platform was that it fulfilled our requirements and it was commonly used by other companies so it was fairly easy to find people who knew how to use the platform. The Sonartype Nexus Platform also had the possibility for us to improve by using the other tools in the platform even if the artifact repository was our main interest in the beginning.

The Sonatype Nexus Platform is suitable if you have a need to either keep old historical versions of your builds. It’s also suitable if you have a need to ensure you can build old versions of your system even if the online source of a third-party library becomes unavailable. It's hard to justify the complexity of the platform if you are doing one-time prototyping and never have a need to go back to old builds.
