Overview

The tomcat module installs and configures Apache Tomcat instances from either the packages available in your distribution's repositories, or from any archive file you provide to it.

Module description

This module will install the desired version of the Apache Tomcat Web Application Container from almost any possible source, including the repositories available on the target system (distribution repositories or third-party sources like JPackage and EPEL)
A long list of parameters allow a fine tuning of the server and the JVM. Tomcat's most common elements are provided, and virtually any missing parameters can be included using the hash parameters present in each block.
It is also possible to configure, besides the server itself, admin applications, extra libraries, etc.
The creation of individual instances following Apache's guidelines is supported via a custom type.

Setup

tomcat will affect the following parts of your system:

  • tomcat packages and dependencies
  • tomcat service(s)
  • instances configuration
  • tomcat user database(s) and authorized users (defined type)

Including the main class is enough to install the default version of Tomcat provided by your distribution, and run it with default settings.

include tomcat

Installation scenarios

Install from archive instead of distribution package

class { 'tomcat':
  install_from => 'archive',
  version      => '8.0.15'
}

Disable main instance and setup 2 individual instances

class { 'tomcat':
  service_ensure => 'stopped',
  service_enable => false
}
tomcat::instance { 'instance1':
  server_control_port => 8005,
  http_port           => 8080,
  ajp_connector       => false,}
tomcat::instance { 'instance2':
  server_control_port => 8006,
  http_port           => 8081,
  manage_firewall     => true,}

Start a second instance with a different tomcat version

class { 'tomcat':
  install_from => 'archive',
  version      => '7.0.55'}
tomcat::instance { 'my_app':
  version => '8.0.18'}

Use a non-default JVM and run it with custom options

class { 'tomcat':
  java_home => '/usr/java/jre1.7.0_65',
  java_opts => ['-server', '-Xmx2048m', '-Xms256m', '-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC']
}

Enable the manager/host-manager webapps and configure default admin

class { 'tomcat':admin_webapps        => true,
  create_default_admin => true,
  admin_user           => 'tomcatmaster',
  admin_password       => 'meow'
}

Use with custom packages/custom installation layouts (eg. with Ulyaoth)

class { 'tomcat':
  package_name               => 'ulyaoth-tomcat8',
  version                    => '8.0.15'
  service_name               => 'tomcat',
  config_path                => '/opt/tomcat/bin/setenv.sh',
  catalina_home              => '/opt/tomcat',
  catalina_pid               => '$CATALINA_TMPDIR/$SERVICE_NAME.pid',
  admin_webapps_package_name => 'ulyaoth-tomcat8-admin',
  tomcat_native              => true,
  tomcat_native_package_name => 'ulyaoth-tomcat-native'}

This module distinguishes two different contexts:

  • global: default instance and global libraries
  • instance: individual tomcat instance

Both contexts share most of their parameters.

Classes and Defined Types

Class: tomcat

Primary class and entry point of the module

Parameters within tomcat:

Packages and service

install_from

What type of source to install from. The module will download the necessary files by itself. Valid values are package and archive. Defaults to package.

package_name

Tomcat package name. Ignored if installed from archive. Default depends on the distribution.

Testing

The only prerequisite is to have the Bundler gem installed:

$ gem install bundler

Install gem dependencies using Bundler (related documentation page here):

$ bundle install

When your environment is set up, run the spec tests inside the module directory using:

$ bundle exec rake spec

Check the puppetlabs_spec_helper GitHub repository for more information.
