Hi,
Does anyone have link for building Jboss JVM cluster ?
I will prefer youtube , video or a step-by-step document link. I have had a look at jboss wiki pages and I found them hard to digest.

Thanks

first of all which version of jboss do you want to cluster ? generally it is almost the same for different versions, but there are some small config differences per version.
by the way for jboss 5 thi link http://xebee.xebia.in/2009/12/03/jboss-clustering-in-5-minutes/ is quitge useful ;)

If the link which I proposed is not clear, what do you expect ?
When you speak about clustering what do you want to cluster ? is it a web application which you use ? or is it EJB beans ?
Should failover of user sessions be taken into account ?

>> I expect a step by step guide to setup Jboss vertical/horizonal clustering.
Please see attached diagram for reference and that is what I wish to build.
I need to have 4 JVMs, 2 in each node (vertical clustered)  and then horizontally added thru single http server.

>> Yeap, it's a 3rd party application certified for any J2EE cluster

Should failover of user sessions be taken into account ?
>> Yeap, needed I prefer disk over memory for session persistence.

The websphere contains deployment manager which manages individual node agent processes. The nodeagent in turn control the individual JVMs at each physical server.
The same task is done by AdminConsole under Weblogic.

What do we have here at Jboss ?
on jboss until version 7 it was no notion of the admin server, all servers are identical and all tasks are done from command line.
in jboss7 it is an admin node is introduced. But I don't have much experience with it yet.
regarding step=-by-step guide I think http://docs.jboss.org/jbossclustering/cluster_guide/5.1/html-single/index.html provides nice chapter 1 - quick start guide. It should be enough in most cases.
