Overview

This is a highly customizable Puppet profile class to define a basic WebLogic (empty) domain on your system. At its core just adding:

contain wls_profile::basic_domain

Is enough to get an empty WebLogic 12.2.1.3. WebLogic domain running on your system.

But sometimes you have specific uses cases that are not handled well by the standard classes. This profile class allows you to add your own code to the execution.

Stages

Defining and starting an empty basic WebLogic domain on you system goes through several stages(These are not puppet stages):

  • weblogic Install and patch the WebLogic software
  • wls_domain Create an empty WebLogic domain
  • wls_startup Make sure the domain restarts after a system reboot.

All these stages have a default implementation. This implementation is suitable to get off to an easy start. These classed all have parameters you can customize through hiera values. The defaults are specified in the module’s data/default.yaml file.

before classes

But sometimes this is not enough, and you would like to add some extra definitions, you can, for example, add a Puppet class to be executed after the weblogic stage is done and before the wls_domain is done. You can do this by adding the next line to your yaml data:

wls_profile::basic_domain::before_wls_domain:   my_profile::my_extra_class

after classes

You can do the same when you want to add code after one of the stage classes:

wls_profile::basic_domain::after_wls_domain:   my_profile::my_extra_class

Skipping

Sometimes organizations use different modules and mechanisms to implement a feature, and you want to skip the class:

wls_profile::basic_domain::wls_startup:   skip

Replacing

Or provide your own implementation:

wls_profile::basic_domain::wls_domain:   my_profile::my_own_implementation

This mechanism can be used for all named stages and makes it easy to move from an easy setup with a running standard WebLogic installation to a fully customized setup using a lot of your own classes plugged in.

Look at the description of the stages and their properties.
