Subject AW: Tomcat 3.1 Scalability
Date Wed, 27 Sep 2000 13:21:29 GMT
There are at least two answers to this question:

- Yes. You can implement persistent sessions on your own.
  Pro: You can use every load balancer
  Con: Quite a nice task to be done
       You must buy a load balancer
- No. You can use tomcat as a load balancer, it is dispatching 
  the request for the same session to the same engine
  Pro: You don't have to implement anything
       You don't have to buy an external load balancer
  Con: the load balancing might not be as powerfull or fast as
  external load balancers, the configration is quite complex

Attached you find two mails from Joseph Chiu []
who posted his config some time ago in this list.
