What is Java?
Java is a general-purpose, concurrent, class-based, object-oriented programming language specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It lets application developers 'write once, run anywhere' (WORA), meaning that coders can write a single application and compile it on many platforms without rewriting it. These targeted applications include enterprise software systems, applets, browser plugins, J2ME apps, and other applications that have already driven the popularity of Java technology on the server and the embedded platform.
What is Nexus?
The Nexus repository is a repository that facilitates the discovery, access and installation of public artifacts. It supports open source dependencies and references them in Maven-compatible package declarations. The most common use is to resolve a target dependency by hashing a file with a specified MD5 sum and using Nexus to look up the artifact in its local cache or available repositories . It is also possible to combine Maven (and other) metadata with an artifact before publication.
