My appication, 'Reg', has a speed/access problem between JBoss and its database. I'm using JBoss-3.2.1/tomcat-4.1.24 on one server, which connects to SQL Server 2000 on a separate server, connecting through the iNet Gate driver. I'm using CMP 2.x.
Reg has a number of local entity beans which are accessed through a coarse-grained remote session bean (AssetSessionBean). An Asset entity bean has 2 beans relationed to it, PriceBookItemEJB (1-1) and FlexData(1-M).
The problem is very apparent in a method called to duplicate an already existing asset. There's a lot of chatter between JBoss and the database, with ejbStore being called a lot.
In addition, when I access JBoss using say 50 threads to individually create assets (to test performance and concurrency), it creates the assets one after another. There seems to no multi-threading / interleaving happening.
Does anyone know what might be going on here?
My assembly descriptor in ejb-jar.xml looks as follows:
Never mind, found out what the problem was.
The iNet Gate driver. We switched to the Microsoft SQL Server JDBC driver and the application now screams...
