At my work all development is over java techonology, and we use nexus for manage our maven repositories. But for a new project, it's necesary build dll's and exe's artifacts, so, it's possible to put those windows binary files into a nexus repository?, there some plugin to make this simplier?, it's a crazyness what i'm trying to do?
Thanks in advance!
I use Nexus to store all the binary dependencies that I download from the internet.
You can upload the files using the Nexus GUI or use the Maven command line as follows:
mvn deploy:deploy-file \ -Durl=$REPO_URL \ -DrepositoryId=$REPO_ID \ -DgroupId=org.apache.maven \ -DartifactId=maven \ -Dversion=2.2.1 \ -Dpackaging=zip \ -Dfile=maven.zip
This will generate the POM for you zip package automatically.
To retrieve dependencies, you can just navigate to the Nexus URL, or use a generic dependency manager tool like ivy:
java -jar ivy.jar -dependency org.apache.maven maven 2.2.1 -retrieve [artifact].[ext]
