This is a demonstration module to show how you can use custom facts to gather the output of system commands, in this case, to try and find the version of WebLogic being used.


Setup Requirements

Looks for a copy of WebLogic at /home/app and reports the version found in fact called weblogic_version


This module just provides a custom fact implementation. To use it, just install the module on your puppet master and agents will begin sending WebLogic version information to the master.



A custom fact indicating the current version of WebLogic found


Only compatible with Linux style OS's due to shell commands being used in the custom type. Expects to find WebLogic on the system at /home/app.

Puppet do not provide support for this module


This is more an example of how to write a custom fact then a useful module. I'm pretty sure /home/app isn't where WebLogic is supposed to be installed but it worked for me for demonstration purposes.

Happy to review PRs to make this module useful.
