Deprecated feature: The partitioning facility (WPF) feature is deprecated. You can configure partitioning with WebSphere eXtreme Scale.
The EJB API and extending the HttpPartitionBean
The HttpPartitionBean serves as the link between partitioning facility and HTTP partitioning facility applications. It registers the Application Server partitioning facility PartitionManager with the HttpPartitionManager. When using the Servlet API, the sample HttpPartitionBean shipped with WebSphere eXtreme Scale does not need to be modified.
You can modify HttpPartitionBean to perform any function available through the servlet API. By using the Enterprise JavaBeans™ (EJB) API, partitions and expressions can be specified, partitions can be added, and the HttpPartitionManager can be used as in the servlet API. This section describes in further detail, how this can be accomplished. In addition, it describes the internals of the HttpPartitionBean.
