Great work on that page!

I was wondering if there is some kind of "bundle diff tool" that can show us how we're doing
(comparing Ant and Maven builds). Does anybody know of such a tool?

I see value in having a directory that we can easily zip and distribute: unpack and run (even
without access to the internet). At the same time, if we can provide some kind of runnable
profile as part of Pax Runner, that would be very convenient too, and launch it with something
like: gateway-ID http://ace-host-address/

At least, the current management agent by default needs these two parameters, its own ID and
the address of the ACE server to connect to, other "identification" and "discovery" services
might automate this.

Greetings, Marcel
