Subject Re: Cluster Cocoon 2.1.9 Applications
Date Wed, 14 Jan 2009 14:37:54 GMT
Hi Raffaele,

we have a similar setup running at our customers site with over 6500 users 
and we are using apache mod_jk for loadbalancing and tomcat 6 as appserver 
on linux with mysql on aix. 
our software stack includes:
- cocoon 2.1.10
- hibernate 3
- spring 2.5.

There are a number of issues you have to consider in order to get this to 

a) turn on stickysession in your loadbalancer, if you are using cocoon 
continuations (like being used in cforms), because then http sessions can 
not be replicated accross cluster nodes! (the continuation enriched http 
session is not serializable anylonger...)
b) turn on cache replication for the hibernate second level cache. if you 
are using ehcache, it is possible with latest version. however we had to 
tweak the configuration a bit that it worked finally.  if you don't manage 
to get it work, turn off second level cache or turn it only on at those 
tables where there are almost no write operations.
