SSPS 0.1.0 launched

So, I decided to release a new version of SSPS. I simplified a lot of thing and I am slowly shaping it to my needs. It doesn’t require a server anymore. All it needs is a XML file (and Application Deployment Module) and it downloads and installs the software as you need.

I chose to do so because, well, there are many other – far more competent – tools to publish software out there. Maven, itself, can do it pretty quickly. Anyway, if you’re interested, check it out.

 

 

New goodies for SSPS 0.1.x

For the last few days I’ve been working on a few improvements for the SSPS. One of the focus I have at the moment is to make it easier to use. The fact that it relies on a 3rd party component to work may raise eyebrows on some users. Hence I am trying to make it easier to setup a new repository. Today I pushed a few patches to the master that allow a user to configure a repository by using the following command:

 

This command downloads, installs and pre-configure JackRabbit with a very simple repository. As the application matures, I plan to make its usage even easier. If you’re not afraid of unstable software, you can get the latest and greatest code from my github.
