ActiveCluster is an API for writing cluster-based distributed systems. It is a simple API which reuses a few of the standard JMS APIs for Message, Destination, MessageListener and adds a few simple interfaces for working with clusters.

ActiveCluster is a simple API which is easy to implement on top of any networking library. It can be used to build a variety of different network protocols like...

  • buddy-groups for Web based or EJB based session replication
  • master / slave protocols for hot-standby protocols
  • controller-voting protocols to elect a single node in a cluster to be the controller along with defining who will be the next node if the controller falls over as well as detecting the loss of the controller
  • distributed lock manager

The default implementation uses JMS though we should be easily be able to add other implementations further down the line, like a JGroups implementation etc
