Getting started with HA/clustering in JBoss AS 6 or 7?

Hello All,

I have been tasked with evaluating and prototyping a new clustered container solution.  We are seeking horizontal scalability for a large workload.  JBoss AS 7 is at the top of my list.  However, I need to figure out how to use the clustering in JBoss AS 7.  I have very little experience clustering JBossAS.

 

What documentation is available?  I can see the final docs aren't ready yet.  Are there beta docs or blog posts?  If not, I am happy to stumble through docs or blog posts written for previous versions.

 

What's the best place to get started? 

 

I need to familiarize myself with JBoss HA offerings and get enough information to build a proof-of-concept application.

 

From the looks of several threads and the missing documentatation, JBoss AS 7 HA isn't production-ready and I may need to wait till 7.1.

If 7.0 is not an option, is there documentation regarding clustering on 6?  I have only managed to find information regarding 5.x.  We're migrating from 4.3.x EAP, so even 6 would be a huge ugrade for us. 

 

Thanks,
Steven
