I have a master-slave puppet set-up. I need to configure some puppet-scripts on my master-device, that a JBoss Application Server (latest version) Instance is installed and correctly configured on this setup.

This is what I've done so far:

  • A simple master-slave HelloWorld example up and running on master and slave
  • Googleing for two days on this particular question didn't gave me a good step-by-step tutorial.

I hope somebody can help me out with this one.

Thanks in advance
