For detailed info about the logic and usage patterns of Example42 modules read README.usage on Example42 main modules set.

USAGE - Basic management

  • Install jboss using your distro package, if available

      class { 'jboss': }
  • Install the latest jboss version from upstream site (note: this option, which is the default one, requires the presence of the unzip command on the system)

      class { 'jboss':
        install             => 'source',
  • Install the latest jboss version from upstream site using puppi. You will have a 'puppi deploy jboss' to deploy and update jboss.

      class { 'jboss':
        install             => 'puppi',
  • Install source from a custom url to a custom install_destination path. The following parameters apply both for "source" and "puppi" install methods. Puppi method may be used to manage deployment updates (given the $install_source is updated). By default install_source is set to upstream developer and install_destination to Web (App) server document root Pre and post installation commands may be already defined (check jboss/manifests/params.pp) override them only if needed. Url_check and url_pattern are used for application checks, if monitor is enabled. Override only if needed.

      class { 'jboss':
        install             => 'source',
        install_source      => '',
  • Install Jboss 7 (by default Jboss 6 is installed) Versions 4, 5, 6, and 7 are supported for source or puppi installation (Note: Not all the combinations have been tested)

      class { 'jboss':
        install             => 'source',
        version             => '7',
  • Remove jboss

      class { 'jboss':
        absent => true
  • Enable auditing without without making changes on existing jboss configuration files

      class { 'jboss':
        audit_only => true
  • Manage different Jboss Instances

      class { 'jboss':
        disable  => '', # Jboss main service is not managed
      jboss::instance { 'app1':
        createuser => false, # Default user jboss is already created by jboss class
        bindaddr    => '',
        port        => '8080',
      jboss::instance { 'app2':
        user     => 'app2',
        bindaddr => '',
        port     => '8081', # You can't have, obviously, 2 instances binding to the same address and port

USAGE - Overrides and Customizations

  • Use custom sources for main config file

      class { 'jboss':
        source => [ "puppet:///modules/lab42/jboss/wp-config.php-${hostname}" , "puppet:///modules/lab42/jboss/wp-config.php" ],
  • Use custom source directory for the whole configuration dir

      class { 'jboss':
        source_dir       => 'puppet:///modules/lab42/jboss/conf/',
        source_dir_purge => false, # Set to true to purge any existing file not present in $source_dir
  • Use custom template for main config file

      class { 'jboss':
        template => "example42/jboss/wp-config.php.erb",
  • Automaticallly include a custom subclass

      class { "jboss:"
        my_class => 'jboss::example42',

USAGE - Example42 extensions management

  • Activate puppi (recommended, but disabled by default) Note that this option requires the usage of Example42 puppi module

      class { 'jboss': 
        puppi    => true,
  • Activate puppi and use a custom puppi_helper template (to be provided separately with a puppi::helper define ) to customize the output of puppi commands

      class { 'jboss':
        puppi        => true,
        puppi_helper => 'myhelper', 
  • Activate automatic monitoring (recommended, but disabled by default) This option requires the usage of Example42 monitor and relevant monitor tools modules

      class { 'jboss':
        monitor      => true,
        monitor_tool => [ 'nagios' , 'puppi' ],
