The term membership scheme refers to the manner in which group membership is managed in a cluster. A cluster consists of several processes, and each of these processes is known as a member. In the context of Axis2, each member is an Axis2 process. The Axis2 clustering implementations support several membership schemes. Next, we will take a look at the three membership schemes supported by Axis2, and how the clusters are configured to support these membership schemes. We will be looking at:
- Static membership
- Dynamic membership
- Hybrid membership
In this scheme, only a defined set of members can be in a group. The Group Membership Service (GMS) will detect members joining or leaving the group. External members cannot ...
