For the benefit of impatient readers, we will immediately show you how to get a cluster of WildFly nodes up and running.

All you have to do to shape a new server profile is create a new XML configuration file. As the standalone server holds just a single profile, you will likely want to use either the configuration file named standalone-ha.xml or standalone-full-ha.xml. Both of these ship with WildFly. This configuration file contains all the clustering subsystems.

On the other hand, a domain server is able to store multiple profiles in the core domain.xml configuration file, hence you can use this file both for clustered domains and for nonclustered domain servers.

Note

Clustering and domains are two separate concepts, the functionality of each does not overlap. While the aim of clustering is to provide scalability, load balancing, and high availability, a domain is a logical grouping of servers that share a centralized domain configuration and can be managed as...
