I subscribed to the starter project mailing list late, so I
cannot reply to your message, I don't have it in my mailbox.

I think this is feedback for Ivar and Ivo at this juncture. It does
look like we will be revamping the UI soon, so I will ensure it gets
addressed definitely at that point.
- It would be good to provide
user experience similar to Spring starter or Helidon
starter. It means giving a user to choose which
specifications or features to include in his project. On

information about how to deploy the generated project to
different runtimes without having hard dependencies.
