I want to use jboss with jboss-messaging as cluster. I don't know how it should work.
My scenario is the following:
I have 2 hosts with a seperated instance of jboss 4.2.0 GA (including jbm). As datastore runs postgres 8.3.
I thought the clustering of jboss is independent from the database and the synchronization of messaging is handled by jboss. In the documentation it is said: "For a clustered installation it is mandatory that a shared database is available to all nodes in the cluster." But then the database is the single-point-of-failure. How do I have to configurate jboss to get a high-available system? Is it possible to create a jboss-cluster without a clustered database that every jboss-node has his own seperated DB?
THX for any reply.
The db is used for message storage so you get the durability aspect. I guess someone would say you add db redundancy to provide what you are looking for.
