Just wrapped up a project with the Headwire team to create an example server environment for getting up and running with a new project quickly. The server has all of the elements needed for a development team like , and already installed, configured and integrated. There are also instructions for setting up your CQ environment, including deploying the CQ binaries into Nexus and making them available to your builds.

The server is packaged as an Open Archive file, so you should be able to import it into most tools (VirtualBox, etc).

Check out the documentation here:
