Grails project and JFrog today announced at JAXconf San Jose a new joint collaboration around an advanced artifact repository solution for Grails, in the form of the Grails Artifactory Online repository service.
JFrog, makers of the Artifactory binary repository, has set up a new dedicated Artifactory Online instance for the Grails project. Artifactory Online, JFrog’s SaaS solution is a cloud based repository management on EC2. It will provide Grails with the full Artifactory Pro platform and features for hosting and delivering releases, plugins and other resources to the Grails community.
Graeme Rocher, Project Lead of Grails at SpringSource said : “Artifactory Online has significantly eased the Grails project’s dependency and repository management challenges by unifying access to all of the remote repositories we depend on. Grails users stand to benefit significantly for this new architecture and we are extremely excited to be working with the JFrog team to deliver a scalable solution for dependency management to Grails users.”
Fred Simon, JFrog Chief Architect said: “We are excited to have Grails aboard,
together with Gradle, Groovy++ and other OSS projects that take advantage of a private cloud repository, and we look forward to serve the Grails community with a full-featured, powerful binary management and scalable distribution.”
Both JFrog and Grails are excited by this cooperation, and see it as a great opportunity for improving users’ experience and advancing open source technologies and projects.
