Subject Change in password mgmt for deploying
Date Thu, 15 Apr 2010 15:54:14 GMT
The way we previously deployed used (from uimaj pom):

<!-- to deploy the artifacts to a Maven staging-repository you have to
      the settings.xml file in your local Maven repository -->

and in your private .m2/settings.xml, something like:

      <!--password>YOUR_PASSWORD</password   <<< instead of this , we
did: -->
      <privateKey>PATH TO PRIVATE KEY, or NOT PRESENT - if using Putty
"agent" pagent</privateKey>


for "putty" style remote transfer.

NEXUS doesn't seem to support this, and the documentation says to use
the method of putting credentials in your settings file.

These can be encrypted, with a master PW.  The pw for that is in another
file, .m2/settings-security.xml.  see

The settings-security file can contain an indirection to a mountable
drive (e.g. a "thumb" drive that you plug in when needed to your
machine's USB port).  This seems the secure way to do things...

Hudson (the Continuous Server integration) has a special path into
Nexus, but only for snapshots.

Here's background info from Jukka:

Nexus uses WebDAV for deployments, and your Maven client needs your
username and password for the HTTP authentication.

There's a custom deployment account configured on Hudson that has
enough write access to deploy snapshots of any Apache projects. The
release manager needs to build and deploy all release candidates that
to the staging repo. This is necessary also because Hudson can't
create the required PGP signatures for you.

I'm at the point of trying to "deploy" a "SNAPSHOT" of the new nexus-enabled top-level uima
pom, to debug the pipeline...  and will be posting things as I discover them...
