We are in the last 2 weeks of our evaluation for JBoss EAP 6.2 moving from a setup that has JBoss AS 7.1.3 + httpd and mod_cluster as a load balancer for multiple JBoss AS 7.1.3. We made sure that the version of mod_cluster in both JBoss AS 7.1.3 and in Apache httpd 2.2.22 are both the same ( mod_cluster 1.2.3 ).
Now with EAP 6.2, the following two links shows the component details for EAP 6.2 and EWS 2.0.1
The above two links shows that mod_cluster in EAP 6.2 is at 1.2.6 while mod_cluster in EWS is at 1.2.4.
Given that the versions of mod_cluster is different, is using EWS as load balancer / front-end for EAP 6.2 supported ( I mean as in supported by RedHat for paid support ) with these different versions of mod_cluster ? ... or is there a different EWS release that has mod_cluster 1.2.6 ?
Also, if we are doing this on RHEL 6.5, wouldn't this conflict with httpd that comes with RHEL 6.5, which is at httpd 2.2.15 ? ( Note: I have not yet tried to install or configure RedHat JBoss EWS 2.0.1 ). In that case, I presume RedHat will support either or both http 2.2.15 that comes with RHEL 6.5 ( with the assumption that we have RHEL6.5 paid support ) and httpd 2.2.22 that comes with both JBoss EWS 2.0.1 ?
