Deploying tomcat webapps


#1

Hi,

although Andrea Campi helped me debugging the application_java cookbook, I’m not sure, whether this is the way to go.

May I ask you, how you deploy your tomcat webapps (as .war files or building (with ant?) on the server)?

Could you give me a cookbook as example?

Thanks
Steffen


#2

u can use the maven lwrp if u have the war file in someting like
artifactory or nexus

I believe that RiotGames has and artifact cookbook that they use to deploy
java wars, you can look for that on community.opscode.com

there is also remote_file

I build with ant and leave the artifacts in S3. I then load the url (which
I calculate with the correct signature) and the hash into a databag and the
(older) application cookbook deploys it for me. I then have chef write a
new properties file out from a template to customise for the environment.
This goes into the classes dir (although, as I’ve now learnt, it should go
elsewhere).

Works nicely for me.

Cheers,
Edward
