Getting started

Support for Oracle Java packages

To use the non-free Oracle Java packages, check the JavaPackage page on Debian Wiki to see how to build the proper APT packages with non-free Java. You will need to publish them in a local APT repository. After that, you can change the default Java package in java__base_packages list to your preferred version.

Example inventory

To configure a Java environment on a specific host, it needs to be added to the [debops_service_java] host group in Ansible inventory:

[debops_service_java]
hostname

Example playbook

If you are using this role without DebOps, here's an example Ansible playbook that uses the debops.java role:

---

- name: Manage Java environment
  hosts: [ 'debops_service_java' ]
  become: True

  roles:

    - role: debops.java
      tags: [ 'role::java' ]
