What would you like to do? Nexus is a Repository Manager for Maven with a WebService API. I think it's not possible to retrieve neccessary files during InstallShield Build process from a WebService.

We do it a indirect way.
1. We collect all maven artifacts with a maven command. To do so, we implemented a repoBuilder goal, which walks trough all dependencies and download each dependend artifact to a single directory.
2. From that directory we burn a DVD to deploy to our customers. If you would like to use InstallShield to deploy and install the repository you can define a component with dynamic file linking.

Regards
Andreas
