A StatefulSessionBean with 'passivationCapable=false' is not sticky on a cluster node

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • To disable state replication in a cluster for a StatefulSessionBean the documentation mentions:

    Starting JBoss EAP 7, if JBoss EAP is started using an HA profile, the state of your SFSBs will be replicated. You no longer need to use the @Clustered annotation to enable clustering behavior.

    Disabling this behavior is achievable on a per-EJB basis by annotating your bean using @Stateful(passivationCapable=false), which is new to the EJB 3.2 specification; or globally, via the ejb3 subsystem.

    But this is not the case. When invoking multiple methods on a StatefulSessionBean, different target nodes are being used.
