ceh/solr — version 1.0.0 Sep 21st 2015



This is the solr module. It deploys an instance of Apache Solr in to a tomcat servlet environment.

Module Description

This module obtains the solr war file from nexus and deploys it to a managed tomcat installation.

This module will also deploy jar files to the tomcat installation to enable:

  • slf4j - logging
  • Java Topology Suite - Spatial Searching


What Solr affects

  • Installs and manages a tomcat installation for solr
  • Deploys the solr war file


To install a instance of solr running on port 7000:

include solr

Enable spatial searching:

include solr::jts

Specify a solr home where your solr schema is located:

class { 'solr' :
    home => '/var/solr',


This module has been tested on Ubuntu 12.04, 14.04 but should work on any OS which puppet-tomcat supports.
