resolving cyclic dependency when notifying resource in another class

Hello,

I have written one apache class which install apache2 and configure ssl and then start apache service. I am writing one subclass which will configure one virtual host and then restart apache service. I am getting cyclic dependency error as I am trying to notify apache2 service once virtual host has been added.

I resolved this error by changing require to include but does this mean that resources in apache class will run before apache::no ?

If not then what is the way to resolve this dependency error ?

Is it a good practice to notify resources in another class ?

Error: Failed to apply catalog: Found 1 dependency cycle:
(Exec[no] => Service[apache2] => Class[Apache] => Class[Apache::No] => Exec[no])
Try the '--graph' option and opening the resulting '.dot' file in OmniGraffle or GraphViz

apache.pp

class apache {

    $listen_port="8181"
    $no_port="4143"
    #file { '/etc/apache2/ports.conf' :
        #ensure => present ,
        #content => template("apache/ports.conf.erb"),
        #require => Package['apache2'],
        #notify => Service['apache2'],
    #}->
    case $facts['osfamily'] {
    /^(Debian|Ubuntu)$/: {

Hi,

At a very first sight, you have to choose which kind of relationships you want (arrows or require/notify).

Fix it first and get back to us.

Cheers
