I’ve gotten feedback that it would be helpful to have a zip file of a built maven archetype - not the maven archetype itself but the result of running the project.

This should make it easier to give someone a skeleton project.

All the archetypes generate a POM that allows for this. So after generating the project, they could do:

mvn assembly:assembly

And it will generate a zip of the source and binary of the generated project in the target/site/downloads folder.
