    Seam remoting poll failover

    Dave Cawthorn Newbie

      Hi All,

      I have a seam page that is acting as a remote event log viewer by subscribing to a topic and then appending the topic message descriptions to the page as they come in. This all works beautifully until I kill the server the web page was connected to and try to fail over to the backup node. The web page doesn't error (like when there is only a single node that dies) but no new messages are recieved.

      I turned on seam debugging in the page and here is the output of debug window. I kill the primary server just after the second poll request. As you can see there is a response from the node that takes over (i checked this with ethereal) but its just a http 200 ok with no data.

      And on the server that takes over I get the following error trace:

      I went through the steps outlined in the clustered DVD demo and believe I have adapted it to my situation.

      I haven't had a real good look into remote.js yet (next point of call) but I wan't try and avoid hacking this so that if it it gets a blank response it will refresh the subscriptions on the new server.

      Any help appreiciated...

          sorry the debug output should have looked like this

            I'll try to find some time to look at this today. I guess you need the following two things to fix your issue:

            1. Poll Handler correctly returning an error when the token doesn't exist.
            2. Some way of handling a polling error in the client so you can re-establish the subscription, e.g. Seam.Remoting.onPollError = MyPollErrorMethod.
