we're done, you will see the custom karaf container as a part of the

Yes, that's the plan.

karaf shell commands? Or are there other things you want to customize /
I mean the default way of launching the ApacheDS will be through custom
Karaf distribution which will be generated in maven build. We may also
provide Karaf commands to manage ApacheDS instances in container.
