    Local Session Bean Failover

    Jared Rodriguez Newbie

      Using local stateful session beans accessed from the web layer creates a serialization exception when the cluster moves across session data. I can use the remote version by using Handles and reconnecting to the stateful session beans from the Handles, but I would like to get the locals and use them instead since there is less overhead and faster access. Is there any way around this?

          Interesting... I'm actually having problems figuring out how to handle failover in JBoss with *remote* access to SFSBs. Can you point me to a code example somewhere so I can try and fix *this* part? Perhaps we can then put our heads together to solve the local interface access problem (tho I think I might already know what your problem is - just not sure).

          Hope to hear from you soon.

            For failover at the web layer I created an object I call SessionCache, which I store in the use session.

            public class SessionCache implements Serializable {
            private transient Hashtable sessBeans = new Hashtable();
            private Hashtable sessHandles = new Hashtable();

            public SessionBean getSessionBean (String name) {
            SessionBean sb = null;
            Handle hh = null;
            if ((sb = (SessionBean )sessBeans.get (name)) == null) {
            if ((hh = (Handle )sessHandles.get(name)) != null) {
            sb = hh.getEJBObject();
            } else {
            // make session bean here
            return sb;

            Hope this helps,
