I am trying to build a distributed environment with JBoss 2.4.3, using a Tomcat - JBoss couple at each node and a single Database in the background.
Thus I can use most EJBs fine, with the standard settings, but in the few cases where I have shared resources, I am having troubles with the EJB caching mechani sm.
So far I have figured out that I can use my own jboss xml with my CMP Bean, and thus can reduce the caching time for the bean. my question is: are there any other possibilties? can i already use jboss 3 although it is in alpha-stadium?
