How to publish a jar into Sonatype central repo

Order of Operations

  1. Create gpg key
  2. Export gpg key
  3. Publish gpg key to ubuntu server
  4. Create account at Sonatype JIRA
  5. Configure $HOME/.gradle/settings.gradle user and pass and keys settings
  6. Configure gradle plugins
  7. Release

Create gpg key

You can see the keys with gpg -K if you dont have a published key into Ubuntu Key Server please do:

gpg --gen-key
gpg -K
cd $HOME/.gnupg
gpg --export-secret-keys -o secring.gpg
gpg --send-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com <KEY ID>

Create Account in Sonatype JIRA

Now you need create an account an open a ticket to reserve a groupip.

Configure $HOME/.gradle/settings.gradle

edit Configure $HOME/.gradle/settings.gradle with the folloing content.

ossrhUsername=???
ossrhPassword=???
nexusUsername=???
nexusPassword=???

signing.keyId=???
signing.password=???
signing.secretKeyRingFile=???

signing.keyId and signing.password you need get from USER TOKEN from NEXUS UI: https://oss.sonatype.org/#profile;User Token. You need login there using same user/pass you got from jira ticket. The property signing.secretKeyRingFil should be something like $HOME/.gnupg/secring.gpg
