    Relilability of the context cache

    Javid Jamae Newbie

      I've been reading through the SEAM documentation to try and gain a better understanding of what level of reliability SEAM provides. What I've gathered is that SEAM doesn't provide any reliability features itself, but rather depends on the container to provide replication of the different components. (This may be an incorrect statement, but I haven't found anything in the documentation that states otherwise).

      So my question is: yes, it is important to have replication of components for reliability, but what about replication of the context cache? SEAM keeps a cache of all the different users' contexts. If a JBoss instance goes down, do all of those user contexts that were in memory on that instance get lost? Do all of my users have to login, create new shopping carts, start new business process flows, etc.?

      Maybe I'm missing something?
