is now online at https://maven.oracle.com What does this mean for developers?
Excitingly, this means that developers working with our Fusion Middleware stack (specifically, WebLogic, Coherence, SOA, ADF and OSB) will now have free and easy access to APIs, libraries and utilities they need to build, test, package and deploy applications via Maven or Maven-smart technologies (like Ivy or Gradle). This not only simplifies their build tasks, but also provides a positive perception in the marketplace. To be frank, we have not historically been seen as "friendly" towards developers, but this type of release proves otherwise.
The repository is now public, so please feel free to tweet, blog and promote its availability in your circles.
We've already begun this effort, but your assistance is always appreciated.
