May I ask why you did changae your architecture to Apache Karaf/OSGi? regards Mike 0 Peter Lynch September 04, 2014 17:19 Hi Mike, Thanks for your question. In Nexus 3 we needed a more flexible architecture for dynamically controlling plugins without requiring Nexus downtime - a limitation of the Nexus 2.x architecture. An OSGI container such as Karaf comes with many features built in we can leverage. We have many exciting things planned and can spend more time focusing on our core features instead re-inventing and maintaining boring container features. :) Please send all future correspondence about Nexus 3 here: firstname.lastname@example.org -Peter Article is closed for comments.
