Subject Re: Question about replication and such things
Date Fri, 23 May 2008 19:42:02 GMT
It's perfectly possible, but it's not free.  Three scenarios:

* Asynchronous multi-master replication:  This is what MySQL supports.
 You'll have to be careful to use sticky load balancing in your app to
ensure that each user has consistent views of the data. But otherwise,
you can use the same SQL Maps (and config) but pointing two instances
-- each pointing to one of the databases (either on the same machine
or on different machines -- or even different apps).

* Synchronous replication.  Same as above, but you don't need to worry
about sticky load balancing or latency.  But AFAIK, you'll need a 3rd
party product like SolidDB to support Synchronous replication on

* Master-slave sync/async replication:  In this case you'd have one
read/write (master) and one read-only (slave) database.  In this case
you'd have to route requests to the appropriate SqlMapClient instance
to ensure that reads are being directed properly.  A fancy way of
doing this would be to put a routing proxy in front of the
SqlMapClient instance returned by iBATIS/Spring.  This can get tricky,
especially with transactions, so be careful.  Also, if it's
asynchronous, you have the same issues as you see in the first bullet,
and for sync you'll still need the 3rd party solution..
