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.

Install and configure maven2 and maven3 from the binaries provided by
the maven project.

Provides the maven LWRP for pulling a maven artifact from a maven
repository and placing it in an arbitrary location.



  • Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, Red Hat, Fedora

The following Opscode cookbooks are dependencies:

  • java - this cookbook not only depends on the java virtual machine but it also depends on the java_ark LWRP present in the java cookbooks
  • ark - used to unpack the maven tarball


  • node['maven']['version'] defaults to 2, specifies the major version of maven to install.
  • node['maven']['m2_home'] defaults to '/usr/local/maven/'
  • node['maven']['2']['url'] the download url for maven2
  • node['maven']['2']['checksum'] the checksum, which you will have to recalculate if you change the download url using shasum -a 256 <file>
  • node['maven']['3']['url'] download url for maven3
  • node['maven']['3']['checksum'] the checksum, which you will have to recalculate if you change the download url using shasum -a 256 <file>
  • node['maven']['repositories'] - an array of maven repositories to use; must be specified as an array. Used in the maven LWRP.
  • node['maven']['setup_bin'] Whether or not to put mvn on your system path, defaults to false



Includes the java recipe, and then installs maven according to the
version specified by the node['maven']['version'] attribute.


For testing only. From the development repository, use test-kitchen to
test that the LWRP is operating with this recipe. Also contains
example usage of the LWRP.


Simply include the recipe where you want Apache Maven installed.

The maven lwrp has two actions, :install and :put. They are
essentially the same accept that the install action will name the the
downloaded file artifact_id-version.packaging. For example, the
mysql jar would be named mysql-5.1.19.jar.

Use the put action when you want to explicitly control the name of the
downloaded file. This is useful when you download an artifact and then
want to have Chef resources act on files within that the artifact. The
put action will creat a file named name.packaging where name
corresponds to the name attribute.



  • artifact_id: if this is not specified, the resource's name is used
  • group_id: group_id for the artifact
  • version: version of the artifact
  • dest: the destination folder for the jar and its dependencies
  • packaging: defaults to 'jar'
  • classifier: distinguishes artifacts that were built from the same POM but differ in context
  • repositories: array of maven repositories to use, defaults to [""]
  • owner: the owner of the resulting file, default is root
  • mode: integer value for file permissions, default is 0644
  • transitive: whether to resolve dependencies transitively, defaults to false. Please note: Event true will only place one artifact in dest. All others are downloaded to the local repository.


maven "mysql-connector-java" do
  group_id "mysql"
  version "5.1.19"
  dest "/usr/local/tomcat/lib/"
# The artifact will be downloaded to /usr/local/tomcat/lib/mysql-connector-java-5.1.19.jar

maven "solr" do
  group_id "org.apache.solr"
  version "3.6.1"
  packaging "war"
  dest "/usr/local/tomcat/webapps/"
  action :put
# The artifact will be downloaded to /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/solr.war

maven "custom-application" do
  group_id ""
  version "2.0.0"
  dest "/usr/local/tomcat/lib"
  classifier "client"
  action :put
# The artifact will be downloaded to /usr/local/tomcat/lib/custom-application-2.0.0-client.jar
