I was thinking about using JavaGroups, or others sort of 'multicast' 
APIs for communication between WebServers and Tomcat clusters.

1) Use the 'magic of Multicast' to detect automatically the topollogy,
    web-servers will discovers which tomcats are available and tomcats
    which web-servers are ready.

2) May be use the Multicast to forward query to the Tomcat Cluster
    Group, to be sure that AT least one tomcat will reply.


But a pre-requisite is to find such API in both Java and C, I don't 
think that's the case for JavaGroups, may be spread (www.spread.org) 
could be used instead since it licence it similar to BSD and that
API's exist for many languages ....


What about ?
