Description

Installs and configures Tomcat version 6, Java servlet engine and webserver.

Requirements

Platform:

  • Debian, Ubuntu (OpenJDK, Oracle)
  • CentOS 6+, Red Hat 6+, Fedora (OpenJDK, Oracle)

The following Opscode cookbooks are dependencies:

  • java

Attributes

  • node["tomcat"]["port"] - The network port used by Tomcat's HTTP connector, default 8080.
  • node["tomcat"]["ssl_port"] - The network port used by Tomcat's SSL HTTP connector, default 8443.
  • node["tomcat"]["ajp_port"] - The network port used by Tomcat's AJP connector, default 8009.
  • node["tomcat"]["java_options"] - Extra options to pass to the JVM, default -Xmx128M -Djava.awt.headless=true.
  • node["tomcat"]["use_security_manager"] - Run Tomcat under the Java Security Manager, default false.

Usage

Simply include the recipe where you want Tomcat installed.

Due to the ways that some system init scripts call the configuration, you may wish to set the java options to include JAVA_OPTS. As an example for a java app server role:

name "java-app-server"
run_list("recipe[tomcat]")
override_attributes(
  'tomcat' => {
    'java_options' => "${JAVA_OPTS} -Xmx128M -Djava.awt.headless=true"
  }
)

Managing Tomcat Users

The recipe tomcat::users included in this cookbook is used for managing Tomcat users. The recipe adds users and roles to the tomcat-users.xml conf file.

Users are defined by creating a tomcat_users data bag and placing Encrypted Data Bag Items in that data bag. Each encrypted data bag item requires an 'id', 'password', and a 'roles' field.

{
  "id": "reset",
  "password": "supersecret",
  "roles": [
    "manager",
    "admin"
  ]
}

If you are a Chef Solo user the data bag items are not required to be encrypted and should not be.
