I'm afraid that the current Lightning implementation isn't integrated
into Arvados.

Jobs are run from pipeline instances which are created from pipeline
templates instantiated with some parameters. The definition for a job
includes both a Docker image and a command to run in a container
running that image. There's a bunch of documentation available at
http://doc.arvados.org/ (although concept level stuff might not be its
strongest suit).

Does that help? Please ask any followup questions which come to mind
either here or on our IRC channel.
