# Using Maven Artifacts¶

Note

You still need to obtain a license from our Sales team, as the artifacts do not provide one.

## Public Maven repository¶

To browse and search the public GraphDB’s Maven repository, use our Nexus.

repositories {
maven {
url "http://maven.ontotext.com/repository/owlim-releases"
}
}


For the Maven POM file:

<repositories>
<repository>
<id>ontotext-public</id>
<url>http://maven.ontotext.com/repository/owlim-releases</url>
</repository>
</repositories>


## Distribution¶

To use the distribution for some automation or to run integration tests in embedded Tomcat, get the zip artifacts with the following snippet:

<build>
<plugins>
<plugin>
<groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
<artifactId>maven-dependency-plugin</artifactId>
<version>2.10</version>
<executions>
<execution>
<id>copy</id>
<phase>package</phase>
<goals>
<goal>copy</goal>
</goals>
<configuration>
<artifactItems>
<artifactItem>
<groupId>com.ontotext.graphdb</groupId>
<artifactId>graphdb-se</artifactId>
<version>${graphdb.version}</version> <type>zip</type> <classifier>dist</classifier> <outputDirectory>target/se-dist</outputDirectory> </artifactItem> </artifactItems> </configuration> </execution> </executions> </plugin> </plugins> </build>  ## GraphDB JAR file for embedding the database or plugin development¶ To embed the database in your application or develop a plugin, you need the GraphDB runtime JAR. Here are the details for the runtime JAR artifact: <dependency> <groupId>com.ontotext.graphdb</groupId> <artifactId>graphdb-enterprise-runtime</artifactId> <version>${graphdb.version}</version>
</dependency>

<dependency>
<groupId>com.ontotext.graphdb</groupId>
<artifactId>graphdb-standard-runtime</artifactId>
<version>${graphdb.version}</version> </dependency>  <dependency> <groupId>com.ontotext.graphdb</groupId> <artifactId>graphdb-enterprise-client</artifactId> <version>${graphdb.version}</version>
</dependency>


## I want to proxy the repository in my nexus¶

The following options have been verified to work as expected:

Note that this won’t give you the ability to browse and index/search our repository. This is a shortcoming of the fact that we achieve the authentication through a repository target at the moment.
