Subject RE: Event Listeners?

Well I'm not certain but I believe we're using a jca connector to
connect to the repository via rmi.  Would this be a jackrabbit
configuration or another?  And if you happen to know where this
configuration is that would be great.
Thanks for the response,

this way, you will never get events because all event listeners that
registered by a session are unregistered on Session.logout(). If you
still get 
events then that's actually a bug.

This depends on your setup (JCA, RMI, JCR2SPI). If you are just using a
jackrabbit repository, then a Session.logout() will remove an event
from the workspace wide ObservationDispatcher, which contains a
thread for event notification. but this thread is tied to the workspace
and not 
to a session.

I don't know how events are dispatched using RMI, but Jukka might shed
light on this.

Just using plain jackrabbit-core the only limiting factor is heap
memory. Using 
JCA, there is a configuration parameter that limits the number of
sessions that 
can be opened, IIRC.
