Has anyone here ever clustered Tomcat or any other Java Web Server? Can you give me some information on how I would do this? Both in software/programming specifics as well as physical location within a network of the diff. parts?
Specifically, I'm interested in a Fail-Over or Load-Balancing cluster setup.

Ive tryed it in tomcat 5.0.16 which seems to work on win2k systems, but i was unable to get it to work correctly on a linux slackware 9.X system. Current the clustering seems to be under development and in most situations will work.
The primary developer is doing his best to get some issues worked out with it and is very open and responsive to changes.
Shouldnt this thread be in the tomcat group?

No, I'm wondering about clustering of any Java Web Server - if others work better than tomcat in that setup, then I'd think about switching.
Can you give me a bit more info on what you did:
1. Were both your clustered instances on the same server?
2. Did you cluster through apache?
3. Did you also cluster a database and/or app server?
Thanks!

I am going to move this thread to the Tomcat forum. This is a Web Server setup issue rather than a Servlet question.
Thanks
