JFrog Artifactory is a binary repository manager that supports build integration, management of Docker images, development of Opkg packages, and repository replication. It also can host and proxy NuGet packages and host Npm packages and RubyGems. The product manages binaries and software packages and ties right into the concept of devops, according to JFrog CEO Shlomi Ben Haim. “Devops is all about automation of the [software delivery] process.”
Artifactory can join with a continuous integration environment, and it works with the company’s Bintray software distribution platform. Developers of the Groovy language use Artifactory and JFrog’s TeamCity for continuous integration. “We're using TeamCity to build Groovy, and to push snapshots to an Artifactory repository,” says Groovy developer Guillaume Laforge. “For our releases, we can build a release on TeamCity, push it on Artifactory, to be then promoted as a blessed release on Bintray, which also syncs our releases to the Maven central repository, so developers can easily depend upon the latest and greatest version of Groovy as soon as it's available.”
