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


Update the isPartitionAlive method

Partitions may take advantage of the partition health checking mechanism. The isPartitionAlive method is invoked by the HA manager to interrogate the application to check the state of a partition. If the application can determine that a partition is healthy, then it should return true. Otherwise, it should return false.

The partition's isPartitionAlive method will be called when:

public boolean isPartitionAlive(String partitionName) 
    {
        return isMyParititionAlive(partitionName);
    }
