Unless it has changed since I messed with it, that FileServerApplication
was some hacky attempt at putting an HTTP server on front of some
repos. It may be an ok starting point but i'd not put too much weight
on it. Perhaps we should just have one thing that exposes a set of
repos through HTTP and is optionally discoverable? Does that make sense?
As for hte UI, p2 users, admin or otherwise, likely have no interest in
"discovery". They just want to nkow what repos are available to be
"added" to their system. So, for example, when someone goes to add a
repo, they might have an option of choosing from "known repos". That
way the list of available repos can be supplied through discovery,
static list, dynamic downloaed list, hard coded, ...

do we really need a separate UI or could we achieve the same by
adding pre-configured viewer filters to the UI?
I agree with you...having a pre-configured viewer filter would be the
way to go for the ECF service discovery view. We can just add this
ourselves (ECF team).
But for the provisioning admin ui, I think any UI integration needs
the opinion of whoever is responsible for the Admin UI...i.e. I'm not
sure the Admin UI really needs/wants a separate view to discover
meta-data and artifact repos...although OTOH, if it did use the ECF
discovery view (s) it would make it very simple/easy/quick to add.
