Developing java and tomcat cookbook wasn't a big deal, but, I encountered problem with an error in case of application_java. My code was follows:
include_recipe 'java' application 'shop-admin' do path '/var/shop-admin' repository 'http://192.168.56.170/zabbix/shop.admin.war' revision '1.0' scm_provider Chef::Provider::RemoteFile::Deploy java_webapp tomcat endMy error message was:
... ================================================================================ Error executing action `deploy` on resource 'deploy_revision[shop-admin]' ================================================================================ NoMethodError ------------- undefined method `create' for nil:NilClass Cookbook Trace: --------------- /var/chef/cache/cookbooks/application_java/libraries/provider_remote_file_deploy.rb:53:in `action_sync' ...The solution was to change application_java cookbook. By default, Chef Supermarket links to https://github.com/poise/application_java.
Other people who had same issue already posted and someone recommended to clone from https://github.com/jamiely/application_java
I replaced with "jamiely/application_java". After that, my war deployed well.
