Tomcat Cookbook and Oracle JDK


#1

I was taking a look at the tomcat cookbook for chef,
https://github.com/opscode-cookbooks/tomcat.

It installs the OpenJDK. It doesn’t seem to have a facility to change that
to the Oracle JDK. I look a look inside the tomcat recipe and yep, it’s got:

include_recipe “java”

The java cookbook can install the Oracle JDK, but the defaut installs the
OpenJDK. Is there a way I can override this without modifying the java or
tomcat cookbooks?
