# Public Maven Repositories

Could the ZK CE edition also be provided in the common public maven repositories!? This would help new ZK users to get started with maven/zk without dealing with zkoss specific repositories. So you can simply say "add dependency" in eclipse to get ZK up. I plan to provide a ZK workshop in our local Java User Group and it would be nice to make it as easy as possible to get ZK up and running.

Hi Thomas,

All editions have seperate maven repositories. The CE edition too. Here is the link to the several places.

<repositories>
<repository>
<id>ZK CE</id>
<url>http://mavensync.zkoss.org/maven2</url>
</repository>
</repositories>

Hi Stephan,

yes i know that and this works fine for me. What i was asking for is to provide the free LGPL CE edition in the common public Maven repository to avoid new users have to deal with ZKOSS specific repositories.

@Oberinspector,

The issue is that the original uploading mechanism to public Maven repository doesn't work any more, and they had changed the uploading mechanism but the new way cannot be applicable to our source code structure, thus we have to own ourselves repository.

Hi Jumper,
yes i know... but probably t could be done for the major CE releases manually.

while supporting maik to provide his zk-codemirror component in maven central i found some introductions which might help and motivate you to put the CE edition to maven central. Only projects hosted at approved forges are synchronized to maven central:

What about to upload ZK-CE poms and jars to the sonatype forge!?
Sonatype+OSS+Maven+Repository+Usage+Guide

Providing additional opensource ZK components in maven central becomes difficult since it is strictly not recomendet to upload pom that refer to special repositories:
why-external-repos-are-being-phased-out-of-central/

I have a set of nice zk components in the queue which i want to release as opensource components and - since i'm a mavan fan - also provide in maven central.
- A windows ecplorer like filebrowser
- A filebrowser Tree/Treeitem component
- An Ul/LI based sitenavigation component
...

And i agreed to support maik to provide his zk-codemirror component in maven central.
