I have an ulterior motive :-) I'm talking at ApacheCon - its a beginners 
OSGi talk on interesting OSGi projects and what they are good for. So 
I'm testing the 'getting started' instructions for a whole bunch of 
projects. I'd like to say a couple of things about ACE - but I feel I 
need to be able to do a very simple command line based deployment at the

That's useful thanks. There are so many of those messages that I never 
actually get the console prompt. Is there a way to turn them off?

I didn't find one - I agree it would be really helpful. Although - I'd 
be more than happy to see something working from a command line :-/

I'll have more of a play this afternoon....will let you know where I get to.

Right - they *look* fine as far as I can tell - but I do get an error 
from the server build:

"ERROR: The data file path must be relative, not absolute."

That may be OK but having something called 'ERROR' is always a bit 
disconcerting for a new user :-) Is it something I have done wrong?
