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.

Wildfly Cookbook

Cookbook to deploy Wildfly Java Application Server


Chef Client 11+

Java Opscode Community Cookbook


  • CentOS, Red Hat, Fedora
  • EC2 Amazon Linux AMI

Tested on: - CentOS 6.5


You can add users in the proper format to attributes\users.rb

You can customize the Java version, and the Connector/J if you'd like.

If running in production, I STRONGLY recommend you use a wrapper cookbook, and manually specify the Wildfly version, Java version, and cookbook version as well. This cookbook and configuration templates will continually be updated to support the latest stable release of Wildfly. Currently, version upgrades will trigger configuration enforcement, meaning any changes made outside of Chef will be wiped out.


  • node['wildfly']['base'] - Base directory to run Wildfly from

  • node['wildfly']['version'] - Specify the version of Wildfly

  • node['wildfly']['url'] - URL to Wildfly tarball

  • node['wildfly']['checksum'] - SHA256 hash of said tarball

  • node['wildfly']['user'] - User to run Wildfly as.

  • node['wildfly']['group'] - Group which owns Wildfly directories

  • node['wildfly']['server'] - Name of service and init.d script for daemonizing

  • node['wildfly']['mysql']['enabled'] - Boolean indicating Connector/J support

  • node['wildfly']['int'][*] - Various hashes for setting interface & port bindings

  • node['wildfly']['smtp']['host'] - SMTP Destination host

  • node['wildfly']['smtp']['port'] - SMTP Destination port


  • ::default - Installs Java & Wildfly. Also installs Connector/J if you've got it enabled.
  • ::install - Installs Wildfly.
  • ::mysql_connector - Installs Connector/J into appropriate Wildfly directory.


Datasource LWRP

wildfly_datasource 'example' do
  jndiname "java:jboss/datasource/example"
  drivername "some-jdbc-driver"
  connectionurl "jdbc:some://"

Deploy LWRP

Allows you to deploy JARs and WARs via chef

Example 1 (from a url) ruby wildfly_deploy 'jboss.jdbc-driver.sqljdbc4_jar' do url "" end

Example 2 (from disk) ruby wildfly_deploy 'jboss.jdbc-driver.sqljdbc4_jar' do path "/opt/resources/sqljdb4.jar" end

Example 3 with automated update (requires a common runtime_name and version specific name) ruby wildfly_deploy 'my-app-1.0.war' do url "" runtime_name "my-app.war" end

Example 4 undeploy (use :disable to keep the contents, and :enable to re-deploy previously kept contents) ruby wildfly_deploy 'jboss.jdbc-driver.sqljdbc4_jar' do action :remove end

Attribute LWRP

Allows you to set an attribute in the server config

To change the max-post-size parameter ```xml <server name="default-server"> <http-listener name="default" socket-binding="http" max-post-size="20971520"/> <host name="default-host" alias="localhost">

wildfly_attribute "max-post-size" do
   path "/subsystem=undertow/server=default-server/http-listener=default"
   parameter "max-post-size"
   value "20971520L"
   notifies :restart, "service[wildfly]"

If the attribute restart is set to false, the wildfly will never restart

wildfly_attribute "max-post-size" do
   path "/subsystem=undertow/server=default-server/http-listener=default"
   parameter "max-post-size"
   value "20971520L"
   restart false

Property LWRP

Allows you to set or delete system properties in the server config. (Supported Actions: :set, :delete)

wildfly_property "Database URL" do
   property "JdbcUrl"
   value "jdbc:mysql://"
   action :set
   notifies :restart, "service[wildfly]", :delayed
