    With a weeks delay I held my short presentation at the Java User Group Hamburg about Artifactory yesterday. Even though the presentation was just about 15 minutes, the feedback was very positive and impression was that Artifactory is a full-featured alternative to Nexus.

    The slides are available here: artifactory.pdf

    I hope you find them useful.

    Best regards, — Jan.

    A couple of days ago I had a discussion on what would be the five libraries a developer should have had a good look at. This naturally is depending on what type of programming you’re focusing on, so you will seldom get the same list by two different developers.

    Let’s define some base parameters: web application development with the JVM as targeted platform (choose your poison: Java, Scala, …). Here’s my list and some hints on why I think them more worth than one look:

    Nothings more thought-thru for developing web applications.
