    Asynchronous EJB configuration with JBoss AS 7

    kal80 Newbie

      Hi,

       

      According to https://issues.jboss.org/browse/AS7-2034 it is possible to define the thread pool size for asynchronous EJBs.

       

      Yet for me it is not completely clear what it means to use asynchronous EJBs in a clustered environment with JBoss AS7.

      I had a brief look in the ejb specification (http://download.oracle.com/otndocs/jcp/ejb-3.1-pr-oth-JSpec) and found that important
      issues like queuing behavior is up to the implementers.

       

      The following points are of special interest for me:

       

      * Are there more configuration options than the thread pool size?
      * If used in a clustered environment and one node crashes, what happens with pending invocations?
      * Is it possible to define a persistence storage for queued data?
      * Is it preferable to use JMS when failover matters?

      * Is there a documentation where I can find answers to my questions?

       

      Thanks in advance for your help,
      Kurosch
