One of the things that struck me as I start to look at the source code that accompanies “Murach’s Servlets & JSPs” is that it’s formatted for netbeans. It didn’t take long to convert one of the examples to use maven. https://github.com/payne/Ch7ex3
I’m thinking of taking the little I learned doing this, and writing a simple convertor to go from the Murach’s NetBeans directory structure to something that’s more popular in Omaha. Of course, once you have maven it’s quick to convert to gradle.
