If any of the above APP services goes down, puppet should automatically start it with the command "/path/to/start/a/service/", if it unable to start or got any errors/exceptions, puppet should check some files are present in a particular path (like,is file present unser /this/path/)

I would recommend either making an appropriate service that can restart itself, either using systemd if it is on your system, using with


or using an external tool like monit or keepalived

-- EDIT --

If you want to 'write your own service', look into using the base provider..

You can then manually specify the commands you want run in each case for start, stop, restart, status, etc... With a focus on the following parameters

service { 'resource title':
  binary     => # The path to the daemon.  This is only used for...
  hasrestart => # Specify that an init script has a `restart...
  hasstatus  => # Declare whether the service's init script has a...
  pattern    => # The pattern to search for in the process table...
  provider   => 'base',
  restart    => # Specify a *restart* command manually.  If left...
  start      => # Specify a *start* command manually.  Most...
  status     => # Specify a *status* command manually.  This...
  stop       => # Specify a *stop* command...
