Java on Snappy

Snapcraft is a new tool allowing developers to easily and quickly package their favourite projects as Snappy Apps or Snaps. Since lots of enterprise developers are using Java for IoT, we wanted to show a preview of how to package a Java war, Tomcat and a JDK as a Snap. The video also shows how to deploy a Snap to a local Ubuntu Core machine for testing purposes. The video finishes by uploading the Snap to the Snappy Store so anybody can install it via one click. Snapcraft is still experimental at this stage. Snapcraft allows anybody to create plugins for their favourite language, packaging solution and runtime platform. We would like to invite the community to help us mature Snapcraft and support as many languages and platforms as possible so anybody can experience how much fun creating Snaps can be.
