Overview

This resource allows you to manage foreign servers in a JMS Module of a WebLogic domain.

Here is an example on how you should use this:

wls_foreign_server { 'jmsClusterModule:AQForeignServer':
  ensure                => 'present',
  defaulttargeting      => '1',
  extraproperties       => 'datasource=jdbc/hrDS',
  initialcontextfactory => ['oracle.jms.AQjmsInitialContextFactory'],
}

In this example you are managing a foreign server in the default domain. When you want to manage a foreign server in a specific domain, you can use:

wls_foreign_server { 'my_domain/jmsClusterModule:Jboss':
  ensure                => 'present',
  connectionurl         => 'remote://10.10.10.10:4447',
  defaulttargeting      => '0',
  extraproperties       => ['java.naming.security.principal=jmsuser'],
  initialcontextfactory => 'org.jboss.naming.remote.client.InitialContextFactory',
  subdeployment         => 'wlsServers',
}

connection_url

The URL that WebLogic Server will use to contact the JNDI provider. The syntax of this URL depends on which JNDI provider is being used. For WebLogic JMS, leave this field blank if you are referencing WebLogic JMS objects within the same cluster. This value corresponds to the standard JNDI property, java.naming.provider.url. Note: If this value is not specified, look-ups will be performed on the JNDI server within the WebLogic Server instance where this connection factory is deployed.

An example on how to use this:

wls_foreign_server {a_wls_foreign_server :
   ...
   connection_url => 'a_value'
   ...
}

This is an extended property. Before you can use it add it to the wls_settings property extra_properties.

wls_setting{'domain':
   ...
  extra_properties => ['wls_foreign_server:connection_url']
   ...
}

The connectionurl.

default_targeting_enabled

Specifies whether this JMS resource defaults to the parent module’s targeting or uses the subdeployment targeting mechanism. When set to true, this resource implicitly inherits the targeting of its parent module. When set to false, this resource gets targeted based its subdeployment’s targets, if one is specified.

An example on how to use this:

wls_foreign_server {a_wls_foreign_server :
   ...
   default_targeting_enabled => '1'
   ...
}

This is an extended property. Before you can use it add it to the wls_settings property extra_properties.

wls_setting{'domain':
   ...
  extra_properties => ['wls_foreign_server:default_targeting_enabled']
   ...
}

defaulttargeting

default targeting enabled.

domain

With this parameter, you identify the domain, where your objects is in.

The domain name is part of the full qualified name of any WebLogic object on a system. Let’s say we want to describe a WebLogic server. The full qualified name is:

wls_server{'domain_name/server_name':
  ensure => present,
  ...
}

When you don’t specify a domain name, Puppet will use default as domain name. For every domain you want to manage, you’ll have to put a wls_settings in your manifest.

initial_context_factory

The name of the class that must be instantiated to access the JNDI provider. This class name depends on the JNDI provider and the vendor that are being used. This value corresponds to the standard JNDI property, java.naming.factory.initial. Note: This value defaults to weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory, which is the correct value for WebLogic Server.

An example on how to use this:

wls_foreign_server {a_wls_foreign_server :
   ...
   initial_context_factory => 'weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory'
   ...
}

This is an extended property. Before you can use it add it to the wls_settings property extra_properties.

wls_setting{'domain':
   ...
  extra_properties => ['wls_foreign_server:initial_context_factory']
   ...
}

initialcontextfactory

jmsmodule

The JMS module name.

jndi_properties_credential

Any Credentials that must be set for the JNDI provider. These Credentials will be part of the properties will be passed directly to the constructor for the JNDI provider’s InitialContext class. Some foreign providers require other properties to be set while obtaining an initial naming context. These properties can be set with a property bean

An example on how to use this:

wls_foreign_server {a_wls_foreign_server :
   ...
   jndi_properties_credential => 'a_value'
   ...
}

This is an extended property. Before you can use it add it to the wls_settings property extra_properties.

notes

Optional information that you can include to describe this named JMS descriptor bean. JMS module saves this note in the JMS descriptor file as XML PCDATA. All left angle brackets (<) are converted to the XML entity &lt;. Carriage returns/line feeds are preserved. <dl> <dt>Note:</dt> <dd> If you create or edit a note from the Administration Console, the Administration Console does not preserve carriage returns/line feeds. </dd> </dl>

An example on how to use this:

wls_foreign_server {a_wls_foreign_server :
   ...
   notes => 'a_value'
   ...
}

This is an extended property. Before you can use it add it to the wls_settings property extra_properties.

password

The foreign server password.

Usage :

wls_foreign_server { ....:
  ...
  password => 'clear_text_password',
  ...
}

The password string is passed to WebLogic for encryption and then stored in the domain.

sub_deployment_name

Gets the name of the sub-deployment to use when targeting this entity Entities are targeted using a sub-deployment with this name. The targets of the sub-deployment will be the targets of this entity.

timeout

Timeout for applying a resource.

To be sure no Puppet operation, hangs a Puppet daemon, all operations have a timeout. When this timeout expires, Puppet will abort the current operation and signal an error in the Puppet run.

With this parameter, you can specify the length of the timeout. The value is specified in seconds. In this example, the timeout is set to 600 seconds.

wls_server{'my_server':
  ...
  timeout => 600,
}

The default value for timeout is 120 seconds.
