Deprecated feature: The partitioning facility (WPF) feature is deprecated. You can configure partitioning with WebSphere eXtreme Scale.

Partitioned EJB overview

The partitioning facility (WPF) offers high transaction rate computing, while the developers continue to use the existing Java™ 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE) programming model. Other than adding WPF framework-related APIs, the developer's entity bean implementation is fundamentally the same as with any other J2EE application and can use the same toolset.

When WPF framework APIs are used, and the partitioned stateless session bean implements the partitioning facility framework APIs, the bean takes on a new level of function and has enhancement management functions available to the administrator.
