Thanks for the clarification on this!

So if I understand correctly, currently it is not possible to use the
Vaadin interface to specify on which host a container is launched. I
already use a ManagedService to set several common properties on the
NodeLauncher. Even though I could use a factory, I still would not be able
to select an instance from the web interface.

Looking at the Ace source I see that a NodeLauncherPanel is used, would it
be possible to create my own UI Extension which I can use to set the host?

Since we are looking at an automated solution (ie no user interaction), I
think I already have to dive into this to be able to have the dynamics I
need. This way I could probably as well make a user interface which makes
it possible to assign a container to a selected host.

Are there any resources/help docs on this topic?
