Partitioning facility programming

This section describes the partitioning facility (WPF) programming environment and how to interact with programming when using the Rational Application Developer (RAD) product. For a summary of the partitioning facility and proxy datasource APIs, refer to the published API documentation.


The goal in this document is to help a programmer, already familiar with enterprise bean development, to create partitioned applications. Since WPF is a very manageable environment, you should review the earlier sections of this guide to understand the capability of WPF and review the examples located...

<install_root>\installableApps\WPF* The proxy datasource sample is also included in that directory and is packaged in the ProxyDSAccountSample.ear file.

Previously in this document, there is a description of each of the sample programs and an example that steps through configuring and installing a cluster, and using the example partitioned Java™ 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE) WPFKeyBasedPartition application. The examples include the source code and can be imported into RAD for review.

WPF requires the use of one partition stateless session bean (PSSB) enterprise bean and optionally allows you to use other session enterprise beans as partition routable session enterprise bean (PRSBs) or non-routable façade session beans to PSSB beans.
