getPublicCachedWebResource method is unstable after adding 2nd server node


I am using WDWebResource.getPublicCachedWebResource in order to put some excel file on the server and I use WDScopeType.CLIENTSESSION_SCOPE as the session type parameter.

Everything was working OK when we worked with just one server node but since we added another server node it is very unstable.

I have created a sample program that uses this method, generates the file and prints it's location on the server using IWDCachedWebResource.getAbsoluteURL() method.

I've noticed that at many times, if I open up a browser and browse to the getAbsoluteURL(0 location I receive a resource does not exist message.

I couldn't find any pattern in here, sometimes the resource is there and sometimes it doesn't.

Any idea why this strange thing is happening?

      OK, I developed my own solution..

      The problem is: If you have only one Webdynpro server, the file is generated right away, and you can download immediately. But, if you have multiple servers, it takes a few seconds for the file to be generated. So, I developed a simple wait mechanism:

      	IWDCachedWebResource resource;
      	resource = WDWebResource.getPublicCachedWebResource(
      		excel.getBytes(), WDWebResourceType.XLS, 
      	String filePath = WDURLGenerator.getResourcePath(
      	File file = new File(filePath);
      	long timeStart = System.currentTimeMillis();
      	long time = timeStart;
      	while (!file.exists() && (time-timeStart < 10000)) 
      		{time = System.currentTimeMillis();};
      	if (file.exists()) 
      			resource.getAbsoluteURL(), "").show();
      		throw new Exception("An error occured while creating Excel file");
