Multiple oracle JDK versions (7&8) using the community JAVA cookbook


#1

hi,

I use the chef community cookbook to install JDK7 on my jenkins servers. I
define the below default attributes on my cookbook to install the oracle
jdk7

default[‘java’][‘install_flavor’] = 'oracle’
default[‘java’][‘jdk_version’] = '7’
default[‘java’][‘oracle’][‘accept_oracle_download_terms’] = true

I am looking for some instructions on how to install both jdk7 and jdk8 on
the build servers now. I came through this section for the same issue but
didn’t give a clear instruction on how to do.


how can i set the JDK7 as the default, so that all my jenkins job use JDK7
unless i specify in the job itself to use jdk8?

So, for the heck of trying i added another 3 attributes

default[‘java’][‘install_flavor’] = 'oracle’
default[‘java’][‘jdk_version’] = '8’
default[‘java’][‘oracle’][‘accept_oracle_download_terms’] = true

so, i have the below among other attributes

default[‘java’][‘install_flavor’] = 'oracle’
default[‘java’][‘jdk_version’] = '7’
default[‘java’][‘oracle’][‘accept_oracle_download_terms’] = true

default[‘java’][‘install_flavor’] = 'oracle’
default[‘java’][‘jdk_version’] = '8’
default[‘java’][‘oracle’][‘accept_oracle_download_terms’] = true

My kitchen converge shows only JDK8 was installed and JDK7 was ignored.

[kitchen@73ee245ec5b8 ~]$ echo JAVA_HOME /usr/lib/jvm/java [kitchen@73ee245ec5b8 ~] cd /usr/lib/jvm/

Thanks for the directions.

So your are using the lwrp from the java cookbook. With this approach, did
you end up installing the default OpenJDK6 as well? Even if its yes, it
won’t hurt anything to me with Openjdk 6, just curious to know. In your
cookbook with this recipe


, which JDK version is the default (which version of jdk is linked to from
’/usr/lib/jvm/java’) ?
Is it the OpenJDK 6 that was installed by default from your java cookbook?

I tested like so, i still have the attributes\default.rb have the below (to
install the jdk7)

default[‘java’][‘install_flavor’] = 'oracle’
default[‘java’][‘jdk_version’] = '7’
default[‘java’][‘oracle’][‘accept_oracle_download_terms’] = true

Then in my recipe, the below lines were added to add the JDK8 on the
jenkins servers

include_recipe ‘java’

#adding the below to test the JDK8 installation
java_ark “oracle-jdk8-x86_64” do

  • url node[‘java’][‘jdk’][‘8’][‘x86_64’][‘url’]*
  • checksum node[‘java’][‘jdk’][‘8’][‘x86_64’][‘checksum’]*
  • app_home ‘java_home/oracle-jdk8-x86_64’*
  • action :install*
    end

Now, i see both the jdk7 and jdk8 under /usr/lib/jvm

[kitchen@73ee245ec5b8 jvm]$ ll
total 8
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 May 13 21:56 java -> /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0_71
drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 Sep 27 2014 jdk1.7.0_71
drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 Sep 18 2014 jdk1.8.0_25

in this case, the jdk7 turns be the default, as the $JAVA_HOME is set as
’/usr/lib/jvm/java/’ & i can go ahead and define the jdk on the jenkins UI
as below

Sorry - for being a knuckle head so far… :frowning:

This is what i did to achieve what i was looking for, using the way you do
in your recipe :

Let the default $JAVA_HOME point to JDK7
– this is achieve my the conventional use of the cookbook java &
specifying the attributes as
default[‘java’][‘install_flavor’] = 'oracle’
default[‘java’][‘jdk_version’] = '7’
default[‘java’][‘oracle’][‘accept_oracle_download_terms’] = true

*Then, allow the JDK8 to be available on the nodes by using the 'java_ark’
resource in my *recipe <my_jenkins::jenkins_slave>

.
.
.
.
.

include_recipe ‘java’

#adding the below to test the JDK8 installation
java_ark “oracle-jdk8-x86_64” do

  • url node[‘java’][‘jdk’][‘8’][‘x86_64’][‘url’]*
  • checksum node[‘java’][‘jdk’][‘8’][‘x86_64’][‘checksum’]*
  • app_home ‘/usr/lib/jvm/oracle-jdk8-x86_64’*
  • action :install*
    end

.
.
.
.
.
.

So now on the nodes i have the below

[kitchen@af9a4ef8f470 ~] cd /usr/lib/jvm/ [kitchen@af9a4ef8f470 jvm] ll
total 8
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 May 14 17:22 java -> /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0_71
drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 Sep 27 2014 jdk1.7.0_71
drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 Sep 18 2014 jdk1.8.0_25
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 May 14 17:25 oracle-jdk8-x86_64 ->
/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_25
[kitchen@af9a4ef8f470 jvm]$ echo $JAVA_HOME
/usr/lib/jvm/java

i can now list this JDK on the manage jenkins page like this:

Thanks for the directions.

So your are using the lwrp from the java cookbook. With this approach,
did you end up installing the default OpenJDK6 as well? Even if its yes, it
won’t hurt anything to me with Openjdk 6, just curious to know. In your
cookbook with this recipe
https://github.com/erichelgeson/jenkins-chef-dsl/blob/master/recipes/build-jdks.rb
, which JDK version is the default (which version of jdk is linked to from
’/usr/lib/jvm/java’) ?
Is it the OpenJDK 6 that was installed by default from your java cookbook?

I tested like so, i still have the attributes\default.rb have the below
(to install the jdk7)

default[‘java’][‘install_flavor’] = 'oracle’
default[‘java’][‘jdk_version’] = '7’
default[‘java’][‘oracle’][‘accept_oracle_download_terms’] = true

Then in my recipe, the below lines were added to add the JDK8 on the
jenkins servers

include_recipe ‘java’

#adding the below to test the JDK8 installation
java_ark “oracle-jdk8-x86_64” do

  • url node[‘java’][‘jdk’][‘8’][‘x86_64’][‘url’]*
  • checksum node[‘java’][‘jdk’][‘8’][‘x86_64’][‘checksum’]*
  • app_home ‘java_home/oracle-jdk8-x86_64’*
  • action :install*
    end

Now, i see both the jdk7 and jdk8 under /usr/lib/jvm

[kitchen@73ee245ec5b8 jvm]$ ll
total 8
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 May 13 21:56 java ->
/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0_71

drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 Sep 27 2014 jdk1.7.0_71
drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 Sep 18 2014 jdk1.8.0_25

in this case, the jdk7 turns be the default, as the $JAVA_HOME is set as
’/usr/lib/jvm/java/’ & i can go ahead and define the jdk on the jenkins UI
as below

So, for the heck of trying i added another 3 attributes

default[‘java’][‘install_flavor’] = 'oracle’
default[‘java’][‘jdk_version’] = '8’
default[‘java’][‘oracle’][‘accept_oracle_download_terms’] = true

so, i have the below among other attributes

default[‘java’][‘install_flavor’] = 'oracle’
default[‘java’][‘jdk_version’] = '7’
default[‘java’][‘oracle’][‘accept_oracle_download_terms’] = true

default[‘java’][‘install_flavor’] = 'oracle’
default[‘java’][‘jdk_version’] = '8’
default[‘java’][‘oracle’][‘accept_oracle_download_terms’] = true

My kitchen converge shows only JDK8 was installed and JDK7 was ignored.

[kitchen@73ee245ec5b8 ~]$ echo JAVA_HOME /usr/lib/jvm/java [kitchen@73ee245ec5b8 ~] cd /usr/lib/jvm/
[kitchen@73ee245ec5b8 jvm]$ ll
total 4
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 May 13 20:40 java ->

drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 Sep 18 2014 jdk1.8.0_25

hi,

I use the chef community cookbook to install JDK7 on my jenkins
servers. I define the below default attributes on my cookbook to install
the oracle jdk7

default[‘java’][‘install_flavor’] = 'oracle’
default[‘java’][‘jdk_version’] = '7’
default[‘java’][‘oracle’][‘accept_oracle_download_terms’] = true

I am looking for some instructions on how to install both jdk7 and
jdk8 on the build servers now. I came through this section for the same
issue but didn’t give a clear instruction on how to do.

https://github.com/agileorbit-cookbooks/java/issues/153

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/23815942/how-can-i-install-multiple-jdk-versions-using-opscode-java-cookbook

how can i set the JDK7 as the default, so that all my jenkins job use
JDK7 unless i specify in the job itself to use jdk8?
