Subject [jira] [Created] (ACE-191) Provision Glassfish servers

Provision Glassfish servers

                 Key: ACE-191
             Project: Ace
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Paul Bakker

It should be possible to provision a Glassfish server instead of a pure Felix instance. Glassfish
contains Felix and in recent versions you can directly deploy OSGI bundles as you would do
in a normal OSGI container. There are some extra features however; for example you can use
EJB, JPA and CDI from bundles and use the WAB as deployment type besides normal bundles. In
the future we can also build towards clustering support on top of GF.

I fixed this by creating a new Ace launcher specifically for Glassfish. It downloads and unzips
GF, changes it's configuration files and installs the Ace Management Agent. GF is started
using asadmin after that. Besides this I changed the Amazon Node Laucher. You can now configure
a serverType to either DEFAULT or GLASSFISH. When the type is GLASSFISH it changes the startup
script to download and use the new Glassfish launcher. 

At this moment Glassfish is downloaded from a S3 bucket that I created because the official
download server is extremely slow. We have to come up with something better however.
