    Clustered HornetQ without multicast

    Mylos Kathos Master

      Hi all !

      I'm planning to move a JMS based application on a cluster of HornetQ nodes which are embedded in the newer WildFly application server. I can see that in the connection configuration there's a broadcast and discovery section:

        <broadcast-groups>

                          <broadcast-group name="bg-group1">

                              <socket-binding>messaging-group</socket-binding>

                              <broadcast-period>5000</broadcast-period>

                              <connector-ref>

                                  netty

                              </connector-ref>

                          </broadcast-group>

                      </broadcast-groups>

       

       

                      <discovery-groups>

                          <discovery-group name="dg-group1">

                              <socket-binding>messaging-group</socket-binding>

                              <refresh-timeout>10000</refresh-timeout>

                          </discovery-group>

                      </discovery-groups>

      Unfortunately our development environment does not support multicast (Windows 7 based)- will clustering work ? is there some workaround if not ?

      Thanks
