Sonatype has unveiled an updated version of the Nexus platform that provides modern development organizations with unmatched, precise intelligence about npm and JavaScript components so they can continuously deliver higher quality software through DevOps automation and scale.

In direct response to market demand for DevOps-native tooling, Sonatype has delivered the world’s first and only coordinate system that is capable of precisely identifying all JavaScript contained in the npm, Central, and NuGet repositories. This enormous engineering effort was accomplished by mapping 43 million unstructured files and roughly 6 million unique JavaScript components into a single, definitive database that identifies names, versions, vulnerabilities, licenses, and code modifications associated with JavaScript components.

To understand the depth of this achievement consider the example of jQuery, the most popular JavaScript library that has been embedded, modified, and renamed in 72,000 npm packages. In years past, due to the unstructured nature of the JavaScript ecosystem, development teams lacked the ability to quickly and reliably identify specific versions of jQuery to even know if a npm package was healthy or vulnerable. However, beginning today, organizations can use the Nexus platform to further automate and scale Continuous Delivery and DevOps practices and ensure that mission critical software consists of the highest quality JavaScript components.

“Scaling a modern software supply chain requires deep intelligence that is precise enough to automatically weed out vulnerable, outdated, and defective open source components and packages,” said Wayne Jackson, CEO, Sonatype. “Our customers operate in a polyglot world and that’s why we’re continuously investing to deliver the world’s best component intelligence not just for Java, but for JavaScript, .NET, RubyGems, PyPI, and other formats as well.”
