# Using Maven artifacts¶

From GraphDB 7.1, we opened our Maven repository and it is now possible to download GraphDB Maven artifacts without credentials.

Note

You still need to get a license from our Sales team as the artifacts do not provide such.

## Public Maven repository¶

The public Maven repository for the current Graphdb release is at http://maven.ontotext.com/content/groups/all-onto. To get started, add the following endpoint to your preferred build system.

repositories {
maven {
url "http://maven.ontotext.com/content/groups/all-onto"
}
}


For the Maven POM file:

<repositories>
<repository>
<id>ontotex-public</id>
<url>http://maven.ontotext.com/content/groups/all-onto</url>
</repository>
</repositories>

We have verified that the following options worked 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.
