GlassFish LoadBalancer Configurator

Please refer to blog Load-balancing feature in GlassFish 3.1 for latest details.

Till now, for GlassFish users, installing and configuring load-balancer plugin was a manual process. Apart from being cumbersome, manual editing is in general error prone. To ease out this process, we are releasing beta version of GlassFish LoadBalancer Configurator. This tool will enable users to install and configure the loadbalancer plugin on the web server. It has easy to use graphical interface which accepts user inputs, and then installs and configures loadbalancer plugin based on that.

This is a IzPack based installer and require JAVA to execute. It is bundled as a zip file which contains installer jar file, user's guide and legal documents. User can start the installer by running java -jar glassfish-lbconfigurator.jar. User need to provide inputs as per his/her requirement. Each screen has Help button to guide user. The installation of loadbalancer plugin is two step process :

  1. In first step, loadbalancer plugin is exploded and installed
  2. In second step, web server is configured to use loadbalancer plugin

Installer provides Post Installation steps, if any. On last screen of installer, user can save a automation script which can be used for silent install at a later point of time.

It also contains an uninstallation script, which user can use to unconfigure and uninstall the loadbalancer plugin from the web server.
