I am testing two web applications(example webappA and webappB) which are deployed on two different machines(example webappA on Machine1, webappB on Machine2).
WebappB will be pinging or calling the webservice of WebappA. If the two applications are not integrated(means if the webappA webservice URL is not given in WebappB), then the active session on the MachineA/webappA deployment is showing 0 to 5. But if the both the apps are integrated then active sessions for the webappA deployment are touching to some 2000 above, though nobody using the applications.
Does it get impacted in the performance of the application or it causes any bottleneck in handling more no. of users(approx. 150Users), since the intended target end users are 150.
What will probably happen if the no. of active sessions(in JBOSS for a webapp) increase in the above said manner. what are the impact areas.
The below is the extract of webappA deployment description from JBOSS webconsole
