Many developers are surprised to see how easy it is to create a hello world
Snappy App. However when you go and create a complex application, packaging
it as a Snap becomes harder. This is why we launched Snapcraft
<>. Snapcraft allows anybody to create
plugins to support their favourite programming language, platform,
packaging solution, etc. Snapcraft is still experimental but with your help
we can make it super easy for anybody to create snaps in any language and
for any platform.

As a preview here you can see how easy it is to package a JDK, Tomcat and
your favourite war:
