    Clustering for a non-http based application on JBoss

    Sapan Bhat Newbie

      Hi,

      I am trying to configure JBoss 4.2.3.GA for clustering applictions (not a web application). Since it is not a web application I am not configuring Apache and mod_jk.

      Here are the steps I followed for configuring clustering on JBoss:

      1. Copied $JBOSS_HOME/server/all and renamed it as $JBOSS_HOME/server/node1

      2. In $JBOSS_HOME/server/node1/cluster-service.xml renamed all "DefaultPartition" to "TestPartition11".

      3. Started the server with the following command: ./run.sh -c node1 -b 10.10.10.174

      4. Repeated steps 1-3 for node2 on another machine in same network where JBoss AS v4.2.3 is installed.

      5. This is a snippet of the console where it added new member to the cluster and deleted a member when one server was shut down.

      16:42:53,155 INFO [TestPartition11] New cluster view for partition TestPartition11 (id: 1, delta: 1) : [10.10.10.174:1099, 10.10.10.171:1099]
      16:42:53,157 INFO [TestPartition11] I am (10.10.10.174:1099) received membershipChanged event:

      16:42:53,157 INFO [TestPartition11] All Members : 2 ([10.10.10.174:1099, 10.10.10.171:1099])

      When I tried farming deployment it gave the following message and the file did not get transferred to the other node in the cluster.

      16:44:42,987 INFO [ClusterFileTransfer] Start push of file cluster-examples-test-service.xml to cluster.
      16:44:43,041 INFO [ClusterFileTransfer] Finished push of file cluster-examples-test-service.xml to cluster.

      I am not able to test farming deployment or session replication due to this warning.

      What else do I need to follow to configure JBoss clustering? Please advise.

      Sapan.
