The problems from http://community.jboss.org/message/643850 are solved by setting stickySessionForce = false. Still the same toggeling after the first switch. Is it a bug, a feature or a misconfiguration?
Background is that I want to deploy new versions of an application without interrupt for the user. This is my main usecase for the cluster. Therefore I would use sticky-session an async replication. When I shut down one JBoss, the second or the third JBoss should take over and keep the session. I don't like the toggling since I fear the async replication with this. When the first JBoss comes up after deployment, I think it would be better when only the new sessions go to the new version of the application, because I would like the user to stay with one version of the application if possible. Therefore I think it would be better when the session keeps on the other JBoss in this case as well. Any thoughts on this?
