Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACE-191) Provision Glassfish servers
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2011 21:02:32 GMT


Paul Bakker commented on ACE-191:

The configuration file has a few more options now:
aceLauncher (defaults to ace-launcher.jar) - The jar file to download from /obr/ and execute.
A new launcher for GF is part of the patch.
additionalObrDownloads - Additional jar files to download from /obr/. Used for GF to download
the ACE management agent bundle
externalDownloadUrls - Other files that should be download from any url before the launcher
is executed. 

Neither of the properties are required, if omitted, Ace will work as before.

So to test with GF this could be:

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.
