Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

You need exactly one MongoDB service gateway, ideally deployed to the same
node as the cloud_controller:

run_list: "recipe[cloudfoundry-mongodb-service::gateway]"

You can run as many MongoDB service nodes as needed to support your expected
work load:

run_list: "recipe[cloudfoundry-mongodb-service::node]"

You also need to install the MongoDB package itself. You may want to provide
your own binaries, or you can use the simplified recipe in this cookbook:

run_list: "recipe[cloudfoundry-mongodb-service::install22]",
