I believe so. Using the jk stuff to link to the web server, you would need
to define your multiple servers in the  Then you can
specify in that for a given uri pattern any of those
servers will support it.  (There is a small amount of documentation to this
effect in the setup instructions for jk).  I am not familiar with what load
balancing algorithm is followed, though.

Subject: Scaling Monster Servlet App

I have a servlet based TomCat application
with loads so high a single VM cannot handle it.

Is it possible to start say, 5 VM's on 10 different physical
hosts, all running exactly the same servlet application code and
have the web server load balance across all these VM's?

Any ideas?
