Subject Re: Register new instance with existing load balancer
Date Mon, 20 Oct 2014 08:34:26 GMT
Hi Yaron,

To do that you need to directly access the AWS ELB API, as that
functionality is still not supported in the portable load balancer
abstraction provided by the LoadBalancerService (just FTR there is
already feature request to improve that abstraction [1]). You can get
that API in two ways:

You can extract it from the context you already have by doing:

ELBApi api = elb.unwrapApi(ELBApi.class);

or you can create the api directly instead of creating the
LoadBalancerServiceContext (if you're not going to use the portable

ELBApi api = ContextBuilder.newBuilder("aws-elb").credentials(awsAccessKeyId,

Once you have the ELBApi, you can register the nodes in the load
balancer as follows:
