    Clustering JBoss and MySQL, support for NDB

    Rienk van der Ploeg Newbie

      I want to create a high avaliable messaging solution using a JBoss Messaging cluster, but now I'm confused:

      From the documentation I read that "It is required that all the JBM servers in a given cluster must share the same database".

      Suppose, I want a high available clustered messaging environment with MySQL persistency, I could create:
      - At least two JBoss Messaging nodes with a shared database.
      - A MySQL database with InnoDB tables because this is the only type that is supported.

      This would mean that the database is still a single point of failure. Therefore, I could create a MySQL cluster, but in that case I need the NDB-engine, which is not supported (http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/JBossMessagingDatabaseCompatibilityMatrix)

      Pleas tell me that my conclusion "Creating a high available JBM solution is not possible at this moment using a MySQL backend" is not correct!
