+      <p>
+	The Location of resources is all-important in a Cluster. The
+	sum of all e.g. Sessions, may be too large for copies of all
+	of them to be held on every node (not to mention the issues
+	associated with trying to keep all these copies up to date).
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	A WADI Partition is responsible for maintaining a Map of
+	session-id:session-location for a distinct subset of the
+	cluster's sessions.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	Each node can deduce the Partition to which a session belongs by
+	applying a simple algorithm to its ID.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	Each node knows which node is responsible for each of the fixed
+	number of Partitions. (This information is disseminated around
+	the cluster every time ownership of a Partition changes).
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	Thus, it follows that any node can find the whereabouts of any
+	session, by using its ID to decide who knows where it is and
+	then asking them.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	The flipside of this is that each time a session is created,
+	migrated, or destroyed, its corresponding Partition must be
+	notified of this change. (In future, WADI will try to ensure
+	that sessions are generally created and destroyed on the node
+	that holds their Partition, so minimising network traffic -
+	but in exceptional cases a session may have to be moved
+	elsewhere)..
+      </p>
+      We can watch this occurring in WADI.
+      <p>
+	Start your <font color="red">red</font> and <font color="green">green</font>
nodes.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	Create a Session on the <font color="red">red</font> node,
+	using e.g. the following link: <a href="http://localhost:8080/wadi/session.jsp">http://localhost:8080/wadi/session.jsp</a>.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	Note that <font color="red">red</font> will say something like:
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<code>
+	  2005/12/07 17:54:29:292 GMT [DEBUG] ClusteredManager - -creation: A931056AACF210B8058025F67E1204CB
+	</code>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	and whichever node is the Partition Master for the newly
+	created session will report its notification e.g. thus (in
+	this case Partition #3, currently serviced by <font
+	color="green">green</font>, is reporting that it has just been
+	notified of the [re]location of a session on <font
+	color="red">red</font>):
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<code>
+	  2005/12/07 17:54:29:271 GMT [DEBUG] LocalPartition#3@green - -insert: A931056AACF210B8058025F67E1204CB
{red}
+	</code>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<code>
+	</code>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	Your browser should be returning a page looking something like this:
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<img src="../images/location.0.jpg"/>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	The background of the page is <font color="red">red</font>
+	because it was served from the <font color="red">red</font>
+	node. There is a table containing one cell, because we have
+	only touched the page once. This cell is <font
+	color="red">red</font>, because it was allocated on the <font
+	color="red">red</font> node.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	Refresh the page a couple of times. Notice that, since
+	everything is now local, we do not see any more
+	location-oriented messages. You should end up with something
+	like this :
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<img src="../images/location.1.jpg"/>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	Since we have touched the page three times now on the <font
+	color="red">red</font> node, we have three <font
+	color="red">red</font> cells.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	Now we can try asking for the same session on the <font
+	color="green">green</font> node. Try hitting e.g. <a
+	href="http://localhost:8081/wadi/session.jsp">http://localhost:8081/wadi/session.jsp</a>.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<font color="red">red</font> should say something like this:
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<code>
+	  2005/12/07 17:59:52:207 GMT [DEBUG] Utils - -motion: A9518C9C6BAB34CDBEE765DF60AE6A76
: memory -> emigration:green (74 millis)
+	</code>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<font color="green">green</font> should say something like this:

: immigration:red -> memory (40 millis)
+	</code>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	and the Partition Master should report the change of session location:
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<code>
+	  LocalPartition#46@red - -move: A9518C9C6BAB34CDBEE765DF60AE6A76 {red->green}
+	</code>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	Finally your browser should now have a page like this:
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<img src="../images/location.2.jpg"/>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	The table may be thought of as a history of the session's
+	location in the cluster. You should be able to see from the
+	colour of the page and the new cell, that the session has now
+	moved to the <font color="green">green</font> node.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	NOTE - some browsers partition cookies by host and some by
+	host:port - Konqueror seems to do the latter - breaking this
+	demo... - what about Internet Explorer ?
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	Just to be sure, refresh the page a couple of times.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<img src="../images/location.3.jpg"/>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	You get the idea...
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	NOTE - we should demonstrate the destruction of the session
+	and its removal from the Partition as well...
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	The transparent relocation of sessions beneath incoming
+	requests is an important part of WADI's ability to ensure that
+	request and session meet somewhere in the cluster in order to
+	correctly render the response.
+      </p>
+    </section>
+      <p>
+      Try starting a number of different WADI nodes, then creating and moving a session around
them...
+      </p>

+      <p>
+	As the number and size of the sessions on a node increases,
+	the ability of the JVM to manage its heap decreases, leading
+	to reduced performance. The physical footprint of the JVM on
+	the box also increases, necessitating the purchase of more
+	memory and larger, faster, more expensive boxes.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	By paging out inactive sessions to a cheaper, slower storage
+	medium, space in the more expensive, faster medium (memory)
+	can be preserved. If the session is required after this event,
+	it will be paged back in. If it is not, it may simply expire
+	on disc. (Note that some types of Listener require
+	notification on Session death and may cause the session to be
+	reloaded as it is destroyed).
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	If a session that is paged out is required by another node, it
+	may be located, read in from local disc by one node, then,
+	without being deserialised (one of the most expensive things
+	that distributed apps commonly do), be moved to the node on
+	which its request has arrived. Here it can be deserialised and
+	used to service the request, remaining on this node, until
+	being required elsewhere, paged out again, invalidated by its
+	application or timed out by the container.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	The WADI demo webapp comes with a MemoryEvicter, which is set
+	to sweep memory every 10 seconds and evict sessions which have
+	not been used for more than 10 seconds. We would not recommend
+	these settings for production, but they are useful for
+	demonstration purposes.

+	We start a <font color="red">red</font> and <font color="green">green</font>
node.

+      <p>
+	When everything has settled down, create a session on <font
+	color="red">red</font> with e.g. :<a
+	href="http://localhost:8080/wadi/session.jsp">http://localhost:8080/wadi/session.jsp</a>
+	and wait for between 10 and 20 seconds, until you see <font

+	demonstrably independant of each other, these problems may be
+	e.g. solved concurrently with no contention on any shared
+	resource and therefore no requirement to be running in the
+	same JVM.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	Many existing clustering solutions require that a cluster is
+	manually partitioned at configuration time and that this
+	structure remains static throughout the lifetime of the
+	system.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	Fortunately for this demo, WADI partitions its problem space
+	dynamically. A fixed number of Partitions is specified at
+	configuration time. Ownership of these is then renegotiated
+	dynamically between a cluster's nodes as they join and leave
+	the cluster.
+      </p>
+      We can watch this happening in a very simple WADI demo.
+      <p>
+	We start a <font color="red">red</font> node. As it comes on line WADI outputs
e.g. the following:
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<code>
+	  2005/12/07 16:30:54:444 GMT [DEBUG] SimplePartitionManager#red - -allocating 72 partitions
+	</code>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	Then we start a <font color="green">green</font> node. As it comes up the <font
color="red">red</font> node says:
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<code>
+	  2005/12/07 16:36:36:720 GMT [DEBUG] DIndex#red - -node joined: green
+	</code>
+	<br/>
+	<code>
+	  2005/12/07 16:36:36:988 GMT [DEBUG] SimplePartitionManager#red - -released 36 partition[s]
to green
+	</code>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+      and the <font color="green">green</font> node says:
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<code>
+	  2005/12/07 16:36:36:979 GMT [DEBUG] SimplePartitionManager#green - -acquired 36 partition[s]
from red
+	</code>
+	<br/>
+	<code>
+	  2005/12/07 16:36:36:996 GMT [DEBUG] DIndex#green - -node joined: red
+	</code>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	so you can see that <font color="red">red</font> has shared its partitions with
the new member, <font color="green">green</font>.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	If you shutdown <font color="green">green</font> (gently via e.g. ctl-c), you
will see it say:
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<code>
+	  2005/12/07 16:40:01:750 GMT [DEBUG] SimplePartitionManager#green - -released 36 partition[s]
to red
+	</code>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	and <font color="red">red</font> says:
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	<code>
+	  2005/12/07 16:40:01:696 GMT [DEBUG] DIndex#red - -node left: green
+	</code>
+	<br/>
+	<code>
+	  2005/12/07 16:40:01:707 GMT [DEBUG] SimplePartitionManager#red - -acquired 36 partition[s]
from green
+	</code>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	This ability to share responsibility for servicing a fixed set
+	of Partitions is at the very centre of WADI's architecture.
+      </p>
+    </section>
+      <p>
+      Try starting a number of different WADI nodes and watching the sharing of Partitions
across the cluster...

+
+      WADI is an acronym of 'Web Application Distribution Infrastructure'.
+
+      <p>
+
+	WADI started life as a solution to the problems surrounding
+	the distribution of state in clustered web tiers, but is
+	becoming a more generalised distributed caching service.
+
+      </p>
+      <p>
+
+	WADI's aim is to resolve many of the problems of dealing
+	with state in a cluster. This involves technologies such as
+	:
+
+	<p>
+	  WADI Core:
+	  <ul>
+	    <li>Vertically - a cache with pluggable/stackable paging and persistance mechanisms
(File, Database, etc.)</li>
+	    <li>Horizontally - A scalable, highly available, self-partitioning, self-healing
clustering substrate - a distributed index/map</li>
+	    <li>Pessimistic locking semantics</li>
+	    <li>Transparent State->Invocation and Invocation->State migration</li>
+	    <li>Under construction - Various replication strategies (including efficient in-vm
replication) for HA state</li>
+	  </ul>
+	</p>
+
+	<p>
+	  WADI Web:
+	  <ul>
+	    <li>A resolution to application vs container space concurrency issues surrounding
HttpSessions</li>
+	    <li>Pluggable HttpSession serialisation strategies - per-session, per-attribute</li>
+	    <li>HttpRequest relocation (by redirection and proxying)</li>
+	    <li>Under construction - pluggable HttpSession replication points - immediate,
end-of-request-group, timed</li>
+	  </ul>
+	</p>
+
+      </p>
+
+      <p>
+	WADI currently supports the following J2EE containers and application servers:
+	<ul>
+	  <li>Tomcat 5.0.18+, 5.5.X</li>
+	  <li>Jetty 5.1.3+, 6.X</li>
+	  <li>OpenEJB (underway)</li>
+	  <li>Geronimo-1.0/Tomcat or Jetty (underway)</li>
+	  <li>JBoss-4.x/Tomcat or Jetty</li>
+	</ul>
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	WADI-2.0 is a complete rearchitecture and rewrite. New documentation is being entered into
the <a href="http://docs.codehaus.org/pages/listpages-dirview.action?key=WADI">WADI
Wiki</a>. We hope to have a 2.0 release out shortly.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+	WADI has always maintained close ties with <a href="http://geronimo.apache.org">Apache
Geronimo</a> and has recently accepted the Geronimo community's invitation to become
a Geronimo subproject.
