Apache as Load Balancer for GlassFish v2

Apache Httpd logo

GlassFish has had mod_jk support since GFv1; a common use case is where Apache httpd server is serving static pages and delegating to GlassFish for dynamic content.

The any-day-now GFv2 UR1 release also supports the case where httpd works as a load balancer to a cluster of GF instances, and Jan's latest note describes in detail how this works out.

Jan's entry not just describes how to configure httpd and GF but it also includes an architectural overview, explaining how jvmRoute works in the load balancer scheme used by httpd as well as how it was implemented. Check it out!
