Subject Re: NetworkConnectors and Master/Slave failvoer

There is an important caveat when using static:failover - the failover
feature should only be used to pick one url from the list of
candidates, it should not be used to failover the transport. To do
this you must use ? maxReconnectAttempts =0

This is important, because only the static discovery mechanism
correctly shuts down and restart the network bridge. see

To make this simpler, there is a new masterslave: discovery mechanism
in 5.6.0 that hides the details of using failover: to pick one of the
available brokers.

Scott has a nice write up here:
