Subject Re: Help! parallel deployment problem.
Date Tue, 25 Nov 2014 03:55:04 GMT
So first, I'd be glad to. Just to be clear-- I'm not in need of a lecture,
but will willingly take one if anyone can help me get down to a solution.
My first attempt at asking for some assistance was met with crickets. I
haven't figured out why when I post (what I think are) well written, well
researched and discussion-provoking questions they get no traction but if I
cry "the sky is falling" folks are more willing to attempt to lend a hand.
Here's my go at attempt #3:

I have a tomcat cluster. It is set up with much care according to

It mostly works fine. On occasion (twice a week or so) there will be one or
more servers which didn't get the message that a new war was deployed
(continuous deployment using the tomcat parallel deployment scheme. e.g.
theapp##007.war) and they happily continue to run the old version of the

In a farm deployment scenario, the master node will announce to the cluster
a new artifact is available and then the clustered tomcats will retrieve
and deploy the new artifact. I can't pin down the problem, but let just say
for argument's sake it is a true link-down situation. There doesn't seem to
exist a mechanism to re-announce, or announce at regular intervals. This
seems like a real weakness in the scheme. That makes me think I'm missing
something obvious. If it works like it says it should in the docs I
shouldn't be having this issue. Either there's something wrong with my
config or there's a problem with tomcat. Based on the hair I have left
after pulling mine out, I'm leaning toward a problem with tomcat. Is anyone
leveraging FarmWebDeployer and Parallel Deployment in their architecture
successfully? If so, DenverCoder9, what did you see?!?


P.S. the sky is falling :)
