Next Generation Maven Development Stack @ JFokus
For my talk today at JFokus today I’ve taken the liberty of starting some notes for folks interested in attending. There’s a lot to cover and so I thought I would try the approach of providing some material up front so the session can be more of a dialog. I’m going to attempt to cover everything in the picture below and save the demos folks might want to see for the Sonatype booth. Happy to chat with folks and do any demos before and after the presentation. Just stop by!
Maven Stack Infrastructure
I’m going to talk about some of the under pinnings of the technologies we’re using as part of our Maven work. Why we selected the technologes and some of the current work that’s happening.
- From Plexus to Guice (#1): Why Guice?
- From Plexus to Guice (#2): The Guice/Plexus Bridge and Custom Bean Injection
- From Plexus to Guice (#3): Creating a Guice Bean Extension Layer
- Apache Shiro
There are several develops going on in the various Maven projects. Maven 3.x is on the way, but we have some very interesting work happing with OSGi within our Tycho project. The Flexmojos project and NAR (the C/++ framework for Maven) are also popular.
The primary IDE integration we work on at Sonatype. The most important thing to talk about in M2Eclipse is the configuration framework.
Most of the work we’ve been doing on Hudson is still not really good enough for public consumption but we’re testing the changes we’re making on the Sonatype grid.

- OSGi Central
- Ruby Central (We’re working on making that publicly available
Proviso is not publicly released yet, but Alin and I have been working together to get our provisioning framework ready for a public release.
We are starting to use Git heavily and soon likely exclusively. We are helping out on the EGit, and JGit projects at Eclipse and we’re trying to put a little Git server together based on JGit, MINA, and Apache Shiro.
I’ll chat about these in the talk.
I’ll likely keep adding to the entry leading up the talk, but I thought I would get the ball rolling!
