Advanced Artifacts Management with Artifactory


Artifactory is an enterprise Repository Manager for your Maven and other binary artifacts, now available in both Open Source and Cloud-based versions.

In this demo-centric session, we present new methods for managing your build artifacts and third-party dependencies using Artifactory's unique features.

By attaching metadata to your artifacts and artifact containers (e.g.:version folders), we show you how to open up unlimited possibilities for managing and controlling the artifacts you use in your daily work, including: promotion and demotion, staging, licensing, assigning quality metrics, using ratings, and so on.

We also demonstrate a complete, holistic approach toward artifacts management by integrating your artifacts repository manager with your CI server, we will show how your build can be automatically linked to the artifacts it produced and to the dependencies used.

Finally,this session briefly covers some of the commercially available add-ons that can be installed on top of the OSS Artifactory version to enable:

  • Smart searches:for collecting and manipulating "shopping carts" of artifacts
  • User-defined property sets of structured properties: to create UIs for tagging and searching of artifacts
  • Focused artifact watches and events
  • Automatic jar signing and WebStart/JavaFx deployment
  • Integration with existing enterprise SSO solutions
