8.11. Stateless Service Failover

The JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform provides "failover" capabilities for stateless services. If one node fails, the service will be resumed on another. The ServiceInvoker hides much of the fail-over complexity from users but it only works with native Enterprise Service Bus messages and, furthermore, not every gateway has been programmed to take advantage of it. Hence, non-ESB Aware messages sent to these gateway implementations may not be able to use service fail-over.
