Nexus on OpenShift using the official jetty bundle

For the last two years, I was using Shekhar Gulati GitHub repository to manage my personal Sonatype Nexus service. Deploying to OpenShift was easy, and I could get Nexus running in less than five minutes.

However, this repository was using Nexus as a war file in Tomcat, something which is now deprecated by Sonatype, and won’t be provided for the upcoming 3.0 release. Besides that, the war doesn’t include support for NPM or Ruby gems, and uploading new war files to the repository was slow and inefficient.
