Summary0005888: create project skeleton for libeufin and sandbox
DescriptionThe sandbox and the rest of libeufin should live in the same repository for now.

In particular:

* it should be a kotlin project (you can use IntelliJ to create it)
* the build system must be gradle (
  (the IntelliJ template should offer gradle as an option!)
* gradle should be used to manage all dependencies (Ktor, XML libraries, ...)
* create demo HTTP server using Ktor (, which should answer the ebicsHEVRequest.
* to allow our testing, the sandbox should just print request messages it doesn't understand into a log file
* the incoming messages should be validated using the EBICS *.xsd schema files (it's probably best to start with EBICS 3.0), with whatever XML validation library is appropriate.
* the sandbox service should be deployed to libeufin@gv, which might require the installation of some additional packages (JVM, Kotlin).

Other things we need to choose include:
* database bindings for kotlin (to talk to postgres)
TagsNo tags attached.

Some other things that need to be part of the skeleton:

* A readme that explains the steps to build and run the sandbox server (using the command line, not IntelliJ)
* The license (AGPL)
* License headers

I don't see the XML request+response schema validation yet.

The "RUN" file should also be just called "README", since that's the standard name where everybody looks!

And ideally, the server should already be able correctly respond to the "version request" EBICS message. Then it's a good starting point for further investigating the protocol.

Since there will be *lots* of sharing between sandbox and nexus, there should really only be one repository.

We can have multiple entry points still for sandbox, nexus and various tools

Also, the Kotlin Coding Style should be followed, and ideally enforced via the ktlint tool.

Coding style was manually reviewed, but not ktlint-ed. Given that linting is something that makes _always_ sense to do, I don't think the linter part should keep this bug still open. Shall we close it?

Looks good to me.
