Hello
I would like to know if anyone has already deployed jforum on a cluster ?
I have seen posts about jboss-cache, but is the support official ?
Has anyone really deployed jforum with jboss-cache in a production environment ?
Thanks for your help

I've never tested the jboss-cache myself. But we will need to have full clustering support in JForum 3. We haven't discussed this proberly yet though.

Please come with suggestions for the best solution around.

Hello again
About Jforum3 : if you plan to use spring+hibernate, I think you should use a cache engine only through hibernate. This way it would be transparent to switch from ehcache, to jboss cache or no cache at all.

There is an implementation for Jboss-cache at net/jforum/cache/JBossCacheEngine.java. You can start from there.

It should work fine, but, as we haven't made major tests, you may encounter some issues, usually related to serialization.

Thanks for your response Rafael
If I understand it right, cluster suppport of jforum is more 'experimental' than 'production ready'. I must say that I am a little dissapointed by the scalable nature of jforum :?

I have put JForum to run on a cluster of 3 machines perfectly with jboss-cache. I made some customizations to the software.

But yes, the jboss-cache code you'll find on the cvs head was never used by anyone, much because we don't put it on the final version.
