Hi all -
I’m starting to drink more kool-aid but don’t want to reinvent the wheel.
We have a several war projects we want to deploy to a windows server running
So the order of operation is:
1 - Install Tomcat if it’s not there
2 - it it was there shut it down
3 - archive previous wars
4 - put in new war
5 - tweak any configuration I need to (some may be INSIDE the war)
6 - start up tomcat
So far, I haven’t seen a tomcat for windows cookbook. Is it bad to include
the binary of tomcat I want to install as part of the cookbook? What about
our wars, do they need to be in a cookbook which has recipes specific to our
This feels kinda clunky (most likely because of my understanding of things,
not chefs fault).
One final passing thought - there seem to be several ways to split up the
dev/qa/stage/prod type configurations. I can have an environments databag
for dev/qa and an encrypted databag for stage/production. But also, I could
segregate via environments. Either way, for sure, we’ll have sensitive
passwords that need to be obfuscated.
What do people typically do?
