      Description

      Springboot introduces the concept of starters, which are a predefined set of dependencies.
      It is an empty jar, which acts as just a container for multiple dependencies. (it should have been a pom, but that means people suddenly need to add {{<type>pom</type> to their dependency)
      Due to its popularity we should solve this during analyze: a starter should be a delegate for its dependencies. (in the code I would use the word delegate, not starter as it is too Spring specific)
