The next preview release will have clustering for EJB3's. Session beans and Entities. It is already implemented in CVS and if you build from CVS you will see there is a tutorial on it.
I built from CVS and I see the clustering tutorial there. I deployed the clustered stateless bean in the 'all' configuration and that works ok... Now to test failover/load balancing, I copied and pasted the 'all' folder and called it 'all2'... In the jboss-service.xml in all2 I uncommented the ServiceBindingManager service and changed the ServerName attribute to all2... However my program never fails over / load balances with all2...
I also tried deploying in the farm folder in 'all' and while it instantly copies the tutorial.ejb3 to the farm folder of all2, it never fails over.
I am certain I am missing a few steps in setting up the backup node. I appreciate your help.
