Subject Re: How to install a target?
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2012 13:49:14 GMT
Hi Mickael,

Any OSGi framework with the ACE management agent bundle installed is a target. This way you
can potentially use ACE to provision to any kind of environment. There is also the ace-launcher
however. This is basically a Felix installation with the management agent installed. You can
simply start the jar using java -jar and it will start acting as a target. You can find the
ace-launcher in the store folder of the devserver, or in the target folder of the org.apache.ace.launcher

For example: java -jar ace-launcher.jar identification=mytarget discovery=http://[devserver-ip]:8080

When you want to use targets on Amazon EC2 nodes, you can also start nodes from the UI. You
do need to configure your account first in conf/ though.

I've downloaded the Apache Ace distriubution (devserver) on one machine

I can access the WEB UI on the server. I would like to create a target on
another machine.

Should I download the same distribution (i.e. devserver) on the other
machine? If yes, how to install Ace as a target and not as a server? What
is the purpose of the devgateway distribution?

I know there is a possibility to install Ace as a feature on Apache Karaf
but I can't find this feature in the distribution. I can see it in the
trunk but I don't know if I can use it.
