Ok, the example I have was about starting the launcher we supply, which is basically an instance
of Apache Felix + our ACE management agent. The latter is also available as a bundle and that
is what you should use when you want to deploy bundles into an existing container (such as
in the case you describe above).

So take the org.apache.ace.managementagent.jar (this is a normal OSGi bundle) and deploy it
inside your Glassfish container. It has some dependencies (imports) but those should be easy
to resolve (if not already available, I don't know Glassfish that well).

This bundle can be configured using system properties for "identification" and "discovery"
similar to the launcher I described before.

If that works, you should see a target with the name you supplied for "identification" show
up in the UI, and you can associate a distribution with it.

Greetings, Marcel
