Subject AltRMI & load balanced requets from client to server(s)
Date Sun, 20 Jan 2002 10:23:07 GMT

I'm starting work on a "HostContext" that would allow a single client to 
actually hit multple servers for method invocations.  The following 
scenarios would be possible:

  1) Client opens a connection with a random* server and continues to 
route methods calls to that server
  2) All method calls would hit a random* server (no stickiness)

* Secondly when we say random, there are likely to be other 
implementations that are useful:

  a) Some sort of querying load capability solution.  One server is 
asked which of others in its fedaration should be hit with requests.
  b) Simple rotating load balancer, first connection uses server0, next 
server1 etc.

What is would be considered the most important to do?  Would there be 
anything else that would be useful at this stage?
