Apache Archiva™: The Build Artifact Repository Manager

Apache Archiva™ is an extensible repository management software that helps taking care of your own personal or enterprise-wide build artifact repository. It is the perfect companion for build tools such as Maven, Continuum, and ANT.

Archiva offers several capabilities, amongst which remote repository proxying, security access management, build artifact storage, delivery, browsing, indexing and usage reporting, extensible scanning functionality… and many more! Get the latest updates, follow us on twitter @archiva.

And in case you were wondering, it is pronounced ahr-kahy-vuh, like archive but with an a!
