My American accent

I took this quizz for accent, seems that I have a Northeast American accent. Well, I’m from the North of Spaing but from the West, does that count? ;)

What American accent do you have?

Your Result: The Northeast

Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island.  Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.

Proxying and hosting a Maven repo

A common question is how can I proxy a Maven repo in my company so all developers don’t need to go out to the internet to download the same thing over and over, and having a place to put the internal private artifacts.

The answer is easier than ever. Use Archiva, it has a proxy, webdav accessible repository, search, reports,… It hasn’t been released in Apache yet but you can get a built version by downloading Mergere Maestro (don’t worry it’s open source).

You just need to add in your ~/.m2/settings.xml

<mirrors>
  <mirror>
    <url>http://localhost:8080/archiva/proxy</url&gt;
