We are pleased to announce the new Integrate with Sonatype Nexus extension available from the Visual Studio Marketplace for Team Services and Team Foundation Server (TFS).

This extension adds a build task which makes it easy to upload your build artifacts to your Nexus Server as part of your Team Services or Team Foundation Server (TFS) build.  This is especially useful if you are not using Maven in your build process because POMs are not required.  Simply specify the repository information along with the file to upload.

The extension is open sourced, so feel free to use it to create your own build extensions. If you have any suggestions or issues, reach out to us on GitHub.
