Search Maven Central Repository

One of the biggest ongoing challenges I see with Maven lies in discovering the groupId and artifactId of various public libraries.

I recently stumbled upon a website that provides a robust search on top of the maven central repository.

www.mvnrepository.com provides search and browse capabilities on top of the Maven central repository.¬† They’ve got tag clouds and other features as well.¬† You can search by groupId, Artifact, or any part of the description.¬† I’ve had much success with this site on recent projects.
