FYI - There are a lot of topics in the forum about this....

The short version is that jForum's caching is done via in-memory static variables. There is no "cache file" that can be shared. So if a user posts to JVM A, the in-memory cache in JVM B doesn't get updated.

There is no pre-built solution for this, but it is possible to write your own non-caching cache implimentation that forces all requests to be satisfied by going to the DB. But, of course, you take a performance hit with this.

I use the jforum in two application with load balance without cluster. connect a same database.

who can tell me how to use the same cache data? I found while a user post a topic but some users can view, some cannot. I guess two tomcat with different cache. I can put the cache file in a public store disk, it is enough to solve the problem? and where I can find and change the cache store path?
