Hi Nick,

Since new Jmol versions are released quite often, it would be great if deploying into the Maven Central could be integrated into the standard release cycle.
Perhaps I can assist with creating the ant tasks for that.

Could you share the pom.xml file you created to deploy the version 12.0.47, so we can start from there?
Did you also generate GPG keys to sign the deployed content?

Dear Tomas,

I put a Jmol release on maven central last year after asking the list,
it would be better if there was an official up-to-date release though.
I can do this again if its a service people want?

You don't need to build Jmol with maven to use the repo to deploy it,
you need to add a pom file listing the run-time dependencies and
upload to their servers.

The version I deployed was:

Dear Jmol developers,

We are using Jmol for embedded visualization of molecular structures in our mass spectrometry framework MZmine 2 (http://mzmine.sourceforge.net/). Since we use maven as a build tool, I am wondering if there are any plans to deploy Jmol releases into a public maven repository. I noticed similar question was asked in the developer list 2 years ago (http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=24757183). Was there any followup development?

Deploying Jmol into a maven repository would make life much easier for developers who embed Jmol into their applications. Note that there is an official maven repository for open source projects that is synchronized with the Maven Central: https://docs.sonatype.org/display/Repository/Sonatype+OSS+Maven+Repository+Usage+Guide

I would be happy to contribute to this effort personally :)
