18.2. Stateful Session Bean in EJB 2.x

Clustering stateful session beans is more complex than clustering their stateless counterparts since JBoss needs to manage the state information. The state of all stateful session beans are replicated and synchronized across the cluster each time the state of a bean changes. The JBoss AS uses the HASessionState MBean to manage distributed session states for clustered EJB 2.x stateful session beans. In this section, we cover both the session bean configuration and the HASessionState MBean configuration.
