Oracle official sample Chef cookbooks and Puppet modules are now available on Oracle’s official GitHub page at https://github.com/oracle/chef-samples and https://github.com/oracle/puppet-samples for Java, WebLogic and Fusion Middleware.
Chef and Puppet are arguably the most popular provisioning frameworks and we would like to help you with your WebLogic and Fusion Middleware provisioning by publishing samples for Chef and Puppet. The Chef and Puppet sample modules and cookbooks are almost the same and are using the same development frameworks.
We start this series of posts with an introduction what these cookbooks and modules can do and provide a simple quickstart how to create a WebLogic domain in Chef or Puppet on a Windows, Linux or Solaris host. In the following posts we will install FMW software, patch and extend a domain with FMW software.
These Chef cookbooks and Puppet modules allow you install WebLogic together with Fusion Middleware on any Linux, Solaris or Windows host. The cookbooks should work in Chef 11 & 12 and can be used with Chef server or with Chef Solo. The modules should work on Puppet 3 & 4 and it should not matter if you use Puppet Enterprise, an agent or just use puppet apply.
The first release on github will contain the following cookbooks and modules:
A couple of important notes about these cookbooks and modules:
These cookbooks and modules contains recipes and manifests with resource/providers in Chef and type/providers for Puppet. The recipes and manifest are a quick way to get you started and these minimal recipes are just calling the matching resource/type providers. You can call these yourself in one of your own cookbooks.
