A couple of days ago I got a request to provide submodules for my Amazon Glacier commandline application glacieruploader. I’ve never done that before, but I learn about how to do it. The OP of the request kindly provided a couple of links to documentation:
After reading up and searching I also added some more links:
At the moment I’m reading the official documentation of Sonatype and setting everything up to deploy my first project to maven central. This is pretty exciting for me. I always publish my projects as open source software using GPLv3 for most of it. But I never actually thought about publishing something to the central repository. (For those of you non-java developers: this is where everyone gets their libraries from.) I’m using the central repository every day, so it is a big deal.
Preparing for the deployment into central means cleaning up my POM, adding a couple of new plugins with the recommended configuration from the documentation above and then when everything is set up, creating a release and uploading it to Sonatype. When everything is done, I’ll write a new post or update this one. Hopefully by the time you read the next update, you can find my first project under groupId de.kopis… ☻
Update The artifacts are now available via maven central: https://search.maven.org/#search%7Cga%7C1%7Cg%3A%22de.kopis.glacier%22.
