As discussed in RFEs 16480 and 16481, there are some issues with the use of IIOP FOLB in a cloud
environment. We are not currently planning on implementing 16480 and 16481 in GF 3.2, so the
restrictions need to be documented. The restrictions are:

1. All instances in the cloud-based GF cluster must have iiop listeners configured on publicly accessible
IP addresses.

2. All instances in the cloud-based GF cluster must have statically-assigned (that is, not using DHCP)
IP addresses for the iiop listeners.

Without these restrictions, IIOP cannot be used in a cloud-based cluster.

[UB]: Unbundled documentation

Comment by Mike Fitch [ 15/Mar/13 ]

This issue is being closed as invalid because it calls for documentation of a limitation that doesn't exist, given that the situation that would give rise to the limitation is not a committed feature of any in-progress or planned GlassFish release.
