             Summary: Scafolding of an scala project should rely on "sbt new"
                 Key: FLINK-7434
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 1.3.2
            Reporter: Svend Vanderveken
            Priority: Minor

h2. Issue:

Currently, the documentation for [scafolding a new scala 
 refers to 3 methods providing an equivalent basic project:

1) installing and using giter8 to generate it from [this giter8 
2) cloning [this other template|]
3) using the [|] 

This works, though implies 3 templates need to be maintained in parallel and 
simpler methods now exist

h2. Suggested solution 

- the documentation for the template related to method 1) above has recently 
been updated: we can now generate projects from it with a simple {{sbt new}} 
command line statement. Using {{sbt new}} is more natural to the end use since 
it does not require to install giter8, and sbt is more likely to be installed 

- I think we should remove method 2) since it is essentially equivalent to 
method 1), with the drawback that the version numbers are hard-coded inside it, 
as opposed to a parameter-based giter8 template
