More on clustering and load-balancing in GlassFish v2
By alexismp on Sep 19, 2007
One of the key features in GlassFish v2 is clustering support. With greater power comes greater responsibility, so Prashanth has a detailed post on setting up and using the clustering, load-balancing and data replication features from the newly released GlassFish v2.
Prashanth goes into the various options in terms of replication and load-balancing using either software (web servers) or hardware solutions. It also covers more advanced topics such as establishing a secure connection between the DAS (Domain Admin Server) and the web server. Shreedhar comments with interesting GMS/Shoal prerequisites like syncing machine clocks.
Update: The clustering features briefly described here are meant to give readers a feel for how this all works and is not intended to replace the product documentation
