9.2. Clustered node operation

The JBoss HTTP Connector can operate in either clustered or non-clustered mode.


Only JBoss Enterprise Application Platform nodes support clustered operation with the JBoss HTTP Connector. JBoss Enterprise Web Server nodes support non-clustered operation only.
JBoss HTTP Connector non-clustered operation
In non-clustered mode each worker node communicates directly with the proxy.
JBoss HTTP Connector clustered operation
In clustered mode multiple worker nodes form a JBoss HA (High Availability) cluster domain. A single worker node communicates with the proxy on behalf of the other nodes in the cluster domain.
