Talend Artifact Repository is based on Sonatype Nexus, which acts as a sort of shared server of Maven artifacts repositories. It is possible to deploy artifacts in the Talend Runtime provided with Talend Open Studio for ESB via a Maven Repository Manager. Nexus is the recommended Talend Artifact Repository to be used with Talend ESB, and it is the default one to be used with the subscription version of Talend ESB to support the deployment of artifacts to the distributed Talend Runtime Container, using a number of pre-configured Talend repositories, which are in addition to the default Nexus ones. This default version of Nexus: Artifact-Repository-Nexus-VA.B.C.D.E, is provided as a zip with the Talend Administration Center download.
For more information on Sonatype Nexus, see its documentation on http://www.sonatype.org/nexus.
This section focuses on using Nexus, and configuring Maven to access and deploy to Nexus repositories.
