I'm currently trying to find out if I can use JBossCache as a session replication mechanism in tomcat5. Looking at the documentation seems to tell me this is not possible with a standalone tomcat, you have to use the one that comes with JBoss. Am I on the right track?
Yes, that's correct. You can't use it straight out since it uses our JBoss Tomcat deployer to insert ClusteredSession and SnapshaoManager, etc.
