In this paper, we present data downloaded from Maven, one of the most popular component repositories. The data includes the binaries of 186,392 components, along with source code for 161,025. We identify and organize these components into groups where each group contains all the versions of a library. In order to asses the quality of these components, we make available report generated by the FindBugs tool on 64,574 components. The information is also made available in the form of a database which stores total number, type, and priority of bug patterns found in each component, along with its defect density. We also describe how this dataset can be useful in software engineering research.
