- which specific jboss release?
- You say: "the refresh takes a very long time to switch on the remaining server". Which refresh?
Please, be accurate.
In fact, it seems to be an Apache problem. Apache (the loadbalancer, port 80) takes a long time to switch to a listening JBOSS when one of them is disconnected. It doesn't happen when requests are directly sent to Tomcat (port 8080).
Sorry for that ...
Thanks a lot anyway
