There is a question in one of the exam simulators that asks for type of load balancing/ distribution that should be used in an online air tickets shopping system to initially direct users to web servers?

The correct answer as per simulator states round Robin load distribution.
There is another option called Reverse load proxy load balancing.

As per whatever i have read till now, Round Robin is not a load balancing but a load sharing technique.
Reverse load proxy load balancing is a load balancing technique.
Based on this, the answer as per the simulator seems to be incorrect.

Please comment.

TIA,

I dont know wath "Reverse load proxy" is but
"Reverse proxy" is a technic to alow user to access aplications inside an intranet from internet, is not a loading balancing techinic.
Also there is a loading balancing technics that makes analysis of the servers (pearhaps this is the reverse) and then redistribuite request in base of this analisis.
Round Robin donst make any analysis ... just redirect requests to each server available.

Hi Balaji,
This was in Whizlabs simulator and got it randomly.
Since I have lost the question now, I can not post the complete question now.
However, I'll take care from next time onwards to paste the complete question.

Thanks
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
