Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Geronimo-Tuscany integration(Sending to both lists)

Hi Simon,
               In one of the previous mails Sebastien proposed two
ways of how the SCADomain should exist in geronimo

>(a) one instance of SCADomain per component running on the server,
>loaded with a subset of the distributed SCA domain composite
>representing that component and enough information about its peer

>(b) a single SCADomain object per Geronimo server, loaded with all the

>at the expense of more synchronization work.

Point (a) looks very similar to the distributed domain concept you
explained. First it should be distributed across different
apps/classloaders. There will be different instances of SCADomain
containing parts of the whole and the different domain instances
should constitute a single domain, which is capable of wiring together
the components in the different instances they should be able to wire.

This looks exactly like the scenario u mentioned but only locally. Is
this supported as of now.

I didn't give much thought to this but at the high level two possibilities.

a) If we have a single domain per server. Then that domain can span
over multiple Geronimo instances and do wiring between JEE apps
exposed as SCA services on both the server instances.

b) If we have multiple domains in each server, then each of them can
span over multiple instances.

c) If in one server itself there are many instances constituting one
domain, then there is a possibility that there are multiple instances
in another server as well which also will be part of the same domain.

d) What to do when we cluster geronimo instances? Will SCADomains be
clustered too?

I am not sure how much sense i am making and whatever I am saying is
very general. This is all i can think off now. If there is anything
else someone can think off pls jump in.
