To celebrate the new year, we have just gone live with the Oracle Maven Repository which contains all of the Oracle-provided artifacts for the Fusion Middleware 12.1.2 and 12.1.3 releases.
You can find out more about the repository on the Maven community site here. We know there may be some issues we did not expect, and we will be watching the discussion forums on that site closely, so please feel free to use that site to tell us about any challenges you find.
We are aware that some of you would want to proxy the Oracle Maven Repository with repository managers like Artifactory and Nexus. We have tested the three common ones, and found that they all need small patches to understand the authentication we are using. We are working with them to patch these issues. We will let you know the JIRA ID’s for these issues when they are available. If you want to help, you can upvote the issues, or if you are using commercial versions, you could contact your representative to let them know you want these patches.
