             Summary:  ACE and FELIX integrated solutions 
                 Key: ACE-593
             Project: ACE
          Issue Type: Question
          Components: Deployment
            Reporter: robertbob
             Fix For: 2.1.0

    I'm trying to use Apache ACE web UI to remotely manage OSGi bundles on  many server devices.
    I followed the documentations   but I can't find out how to actually add a target  to
the server.
    My steps are as follows : 
        1. Start the ACE server

             java -Dorg.osgi.service.http.port=8080 -Dorg.apache.ace.server=localhost:8080
-Dorg.apache.ace.obr=localhost:8080  -jar server-allinone.jar

        2. Start an ACE target

          java  -Dagent.identification.agentid=target2  -Dagent.discovery.serverurls=http://localhost:8080
  -jar   ace-launcher.jar   
        3.Provisioning software
         (1)Go to the ACE web-based UI, and click Retrieve in order to be sure that you
have the latest version of the repository.
         If your target is up and running, it should be displayed in the "Targets" column
with a name of target-1;
          (2) Add the artifacts you want to deploy. This can be done in two ways: either by
dragging-and-dropping them 
          directly onto the "Actifacts" column (a blue border or line should appear for the
artifacts to be accepted). 
          Alternatively, you can use the + button above the "Artifacts" column and using the
"Upload" button
           in the dialog presented for each artifact you want to add;
           (3) Create a new feature by clicking on the + button above the Features column,
give it a name and acknowledge the dialog;
               MY QUESTION: What is the rule of data fill  ?
           (4) Create a distribution by clicking on the + button above the "Distributions"
column, again give it a name 
           and acknowledge the dialog;
              MY QUESTION: What is the rule of data fill  ?
             (5) Next, you can create associations between your artifacts, features, distributions
and targets: 
             a. select one or more artifacts and drag them onto the feature you created. 
             This will associate these artifacts to your feature; 
             b. select your feature and drag it onto your distribution, creating an association
between your feature 
             and distribution; 
             c. select your distribution and drag it onto your target to associate your distribution
to your target.
Verify your associations are correct by clicking your artifacts, features and distributions.

           Doing this should highlight the associations. 
           (6) To persist the changes, you can use the Store button at the top of the
After a couple of seconds, the software is deployed onto the target. 
If you used the Felix demonstration application, you should be presented with a nice Swing

 MY QUESTION:  It doesn't work!   Console does not prompt information  !

      My other question is: 

   (1) how to view a TARGET has been installed in the BUNDLE ? 
         how to  start/stop/uninstall a BUNDLE ?
    (2)  how to   integration with Apache Felix  using Apache ACE Agent? 
    Thank you very much for your reply.
