Installing Oracle database with Virtualbox (or vmware workstation, vagrant(vmware plugin)), chef-solo and test kitchen

“As hot as the microwave popcorn after the beep!”

My friend Scott Russell (sc0ttruss https://github.com/sc0ttruss) has
created a really nifty bash script to install an Oracle 11.2 database
without the full and sometimes heavy chef environment solely for testing
purposes.

This bash script uses chef-solo, vagrant (virtualbox or vmware ws
(vagrant-plugin)), test-kitchen, bento images to pop up an Oracle database
VM (CentOS) in less than 35 minutes (run time). Of course run time depends
heavily on the HW you are running. It work with the latest Oracle v1.1.1
cookbook.

He also has a nice blog post about it here:
