Xtext 2.1.1 artifacts available on Eclipse Maven repository

Until now it was always a struggle to make Xtext (or Eclipse) artifacts available on a public available repository. It seems that this has now finally found a good end.

Today Achim Demelt pointed me to a Google+ posting from Dennis Huebner (our Xtext build manager) where he announced that Xtext artifacts are now automatically available on the Nexus repository at maven.eclipse.org.

The given POMs have all dependencies from their bundle manifests. This is the recommended “Maven way”, but you may face that too many dependencies are pulled transitive, and you may have to cut them down by explicit exclusions. I haven’t tested this with the new repository, but this is what I experienced when doing a similar approach earlier with Xtext 2.0.1, whose artifacts are deployed on the Fornax Repository. Use the dependency:tree plugin, or better M2E, to identify possible exclusions.
