We would like to use JBossCache in a Network where the routers support IGMP for multicasting. On the other hande we would like to use MPING in our protocol stack so that we can attache group members freely. The question is now, does MPING support IGMP, i.e. does it register a host, or do we have to go to the broadcast option.
The following is part of the configuration where BIND_ADDR and MCAST_PORT are replaced at start time through some configuration parameters.
No, MPING does not support IGMP because I don't want any C code in JGroups, and IGMP protocol support would require C/JNI
