Deprecated feature: The partitioning facility (WPF) feature is deprecated. You can configure partitioning with WebSphere eXtreme Scale.
A generic HttpPartitionBean packaging
The HTTP partitioning function provides a generic partitioned stateless session bean (named HttpPartitionBean) to interact with the partitioning facility. It is contained within the enterprise archive (EAR) file of the sample HTTP partitioning facility application (httpwpfsample.ear). As such, all HTTP partitioning facility applications must include this EJB as a module in the enterprise archive. As a result, the application.xml of the EAR file should include a section for this module, such as:
<module id="EjbModule_1090414118785"> <ejb>http.wpf.generic.ejb.jar</ejb> </module>
You can modify this enterprise bean to invoke HttpPartitionManager services or handle partition events. As an alternative, a servlet can invoke the HttpPartitionManager directly. In fact, an application can invoke HTTP partitioning with both the partitioned stateless session bean (PSSB) and servlets simultaneously.
