Hi, I am using tomcat cluster and need to know how do I make sure to update some variable in all the nodes in cluster.
For example if I am saving a value in DB, I want to refresh cache in all the servers in cluster.

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Amit!

Tomcat does not cache either webpages or database data. However it will work will with mechanisms that do cache.

For database caching, one normally either programs cache support directly into the application or uses an ORM framework that supports a caching plug-in. There are a number of open-source and commercial cache products that can do the actual caching.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
I agree. Here's the link:
