Subject Re: [ANN] ACE version 1.0.0 released

Hello Ryan,

Thanks for the kind words!

The "manual process" you refer to is probably the Web UI. There have been many discussions
about that. It seems everybody wants a different user interface to talk to ACE (interactively
or programmatically). You know we also have a REST API nowadays that you can talk to. In fact,
Bram and I have been toying around with some ideas for a "console/shell" based interface as
well, as that is probably an easy way to automate deployments.

To answer your question, I think it would be fairly easy to make a simply extension that imports
Karaf features, or any other way of defining dependencies. I know that for a project I'm doing
at my company, that uses ACE, we have written tools that take a "bndrun" file as the input
to automate deployment. In short, I think we already provide quite a few hooks that would
allow you to leverage that, and we would love to accept some patches in that area from people
that use Karaf (or other systems).

Greetings, Marcel
