module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

nalbion/tomcat_config — version 0.1.0 Jun 23rd 2014

Tomcat Config

Can be used in a similar way to apache::vhost to create multiple instances of Tomcat listening on different ports. Based on Advanced Configuration - Multiple Tomcat Instances

On Linux machines an init.d script is created for each instance. The script supports start, stop, restart and status.


# Configure the standard instance to listen on port 8080
tomcat_config::instance { 'tomcat-pub':
    http_port => '80',

# Create a second instance. listening on port 8081
tomcat_config::instance { 'tomcat1':
    http_port     => '8081',
    shutdown_port => '8005',
    ajp_port      => '8009',
    redirect_port => '8843',
    # Create a ''/'setenv.bat' file to add `<%= @environment %>' to JAVA_OPTS
    support_spring_profiles => true,

# Install another instance, but disable it
tomcat_config::instance { 'tomcat2':
    http_port     => '8082',
    shutdown_port => '8006',
    ajp_port      => '8010',
    redirect_port => '8844',
    enable        => false,
