Subject Questions on ACE
Date Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:57:32 GMT
Dear all

Initiated with my question on SO 
(, I have tried the ACE demo 
and have found it very good. I would like to clarify whether the 
following things are possible with it, and if not whether you think that 
a modification of the sources could (easily) be done to support that.

My use case: I will have several hundred embedded systems running Felix 
which must be kept up to date. I will probably have few (maybe 4) 
different "distributions" (ie. applications), each on many of those 
systems. Here are my questions:

Can I put targets (ie. the machines to be updated) into groups, so that 
I can easily deploy a new version of a distribution to a large group of 

Can I configure when the update takes place - ideally some time in the 
night (when the users don't use the system) with a large jitter (so the 
server is not overloaded all at once).

Can I configure locally (on the agent) whether it should update?

Can I update the OSGI framework itself from ACE?

Thanks & regards
