Subject Re: Tomcat Clustering Support - Without any load balancer like component in the front
Date Wed, 28 Nov 2007 00:01:34 GMT

Thanks for the quick reply Gary..

Some follow-up questions.

1) So the http server bundled with tomcat doesn't do any help ? like it
doesnt provide any load-balancing implementation ? like e.g. mod-jk which
has to be used in conjunction with apache...Further I presume mod-jk also
handles the fail-over scenarios..

2) When u say "there is no huge amount of point", i wonder if there is any
point AT ALL having that tomcat clustering enabled if we dont have something
like a load-balancer/fail-over-service at the front? 

Thanks again

Farhan.
