Load balancing on Tomcat server? I suppose you mean load balancing in front of Tomcat server(s)?

Why do you feel like you need to test the load balancing? Are you using a home-grown software load balancer?

Giju,
Do you mean testing that load balance is actually hitting 2 boxes or that it is hitting them evenly?

We test load balancing by making sure that both boxes are hit after a few queries by different users. We check this by verifying the log files.

We assume that the load balancing software is distributing the load properly.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
