An open-source, federated content repository

New Maven repository at recently announced a new Maven repository. The new instance uses Nexus and has a lot of very nice features and a very usable navigation and search web interface.

Those of you using ModeShape in your own applications or projects likely have Maven settings that involve multiple Maven repositories, including the old JBoss Maven 2 repository. This will continue to work (at least for a while), but you should change your settings to use the new repository. And, you will continue to need other Maven repositories for 3rd party artifacts. Chances are, you’re already doing this.

If you are a contributor to ModeShape (or any other project hosted at, you’ll want to use a different configuration that will download all artifacts through the repository (which in this mode will proxy the 3rd party artifacts). This will be faster, plus it ensures these artifacts are always available to JBoss to build our projects/products (even should other 3rd party repositories disappear).

If you have any questions or problems, please let us know on our forum.

ModeShape is

a lightweight, fast, pluggable, open-source JCR repository that federates and unifies content from multiple systems, including files systems, databases, data grids, other repositories, etc.

Use the JCR API to access the information you already have, or use it like a conventional JCR system (just with more ways to persist your content).

ModeShape used to be 'JBoss DNA'. It's the same project, same community, same license, and same software.
