Maven Repositories

A lot of Java projects manage their source code via Maven. There is the searchable Central Repository. JBoss has a page of their repositories.

But there are other Maven repositories. Here is a list of a few others that I have used and found via the web, in no particular order.

Note from 2020-12-29: I have no idea if any of these are still working. A lot of them start with “http” and not “https”, so you know they are really out of date.
