With very few steps you can create, edit and deploy an application server. It would be the most accomodating starting point for deployable software projects.
Could this be a template for the Gradle Templates plugin?
Yes, it should be a template like that. I think it’s resemble the maven archetype. The template will have to add some files and classes to the ordinary empty gradle project.
A similar template could be the webapplication template, where I can find its source code?
