For example, by providing a 'java-application' plugin which extends the 'java' plugin.

Some use cases:

  • A 'run' task which executes the main class of the application
  • Package up the application into a distribution, with runtime dependencies and launcher scripts
  • Generate native launchers
  • Generate native bundles, such as RPMs or Mac OS X bundles
  • Generate a webstart bundle

I suggest to replace/split this issue, since the application plugin already solves some of the issues (run task, packaging as distro + launch scripits)
