And I erroneously responded on the wrong forum as well :)
Yes, the Cluster guide was written for 3.0 but is still useful. There may be a small change hear or there, plus some new features not covered, but still quite useful. There is a clustering chapter in the JBoss 4.0 admin guide as well.
I am trying to get ready for the exam for 4.x, is the 4.x AS clustering section accurate and have enough of the width and depth?
TBH, it's been a while since I looked at the questions from the advanced course exam. The 4.x AS clustering section is accurate and covers most of the ground. I'd encourage you to take a look at the Clustering guide as well, at least to skim the TOC for topic areas not touched upon in the 4.x AS Guide.
A quick question, when you say 'clustering guide' is it same as "Jboss as Clustering' document dated 2004-05-21 by SACHA LABOUREY, BILL BURKE.
Also, I went through the admin guide for 4.0.2, but I couldn't find a dedicated section on clustering... it's all spread across the document.
Please reply. Appreciate your help.
Yes, I was referring to the 2004-05-21 doc by Sacha and Bill.
Take a look at the 4.0.3 admin guide; it has a clustering chapter.
I'm investigating about using jboss 4.0.3 as an appsvr. what version of jdk is recommended to use with that i.e. jdk-1_5_0_06 or any specific one? which version of jboss is most stable out of 4.0.2 and 4.0.3.
we only intend to use the servlet container in clustered environment.
4.0.3.SP1 is the latest (and therefore best) stable release.
Re: JDK, we recommend the latest JDK from either the 1.5 or 1.4.2 lines. Either will work fine with 4.0.3.SP1. If you can use a 1.5 JDK, we recommend that you do so.
