Hi there,

I think the attribute bin_cmds should be a empty array as default value

  * template[/opt/.java8_alt.jinfo] action create
    - create new file /opt/.java8_alt.jinfo
Error executing action `create` on resource 'template[/opt/.java8_alt.jinfo]'

undefined method `each' for nil:NilClass

Resource Declaration:
# In /var/chef/cache/cookbooks/java/providers/ark.rb

178:       template jinfo_file do
179:         cookbook "java"
180:         source "oracle.jinfo.erb"
181:         variables(
182:           :priority => new_resource.alternatives_priority,
183:           :bin_cmds => new_resource.bin_cmds,
184:           :name => java_name,
185:           :app_dir => app_home
186:         )
187:         action :create
188:       end
189:     end

Are you using the LWRP directly? can you post a sample recipe that causes this error? I think you may be right, just want to reproduce you're use case.

Yes i'm using the lwrp :

java_ark "java#{java_version}" do
    url java_url
    app_home "/opt/java#{java_version}"
    action :install
    owner 'root'
    checksum java_sha256
    default false
    alternatives_priority node['company_java'][java_version]['alternatives_priority']

I can reproduce. It only affects ubuntu. As a work around till next release you can pass bin_cmds [] in your java_ark resource.

Thanks for the report!
