GlassFish is moving farther in the deployment level, with GlassFish v2's support for clustering and other enterprise-level features. A recent example of this is described by Prashanth where, triggered by questions at the JavaOne pavillion, he describes how to use a hardware appliance (Big-IP from F5 Networks) for load balancing.

Prashanth's writeup is very detailed and explains how to configure Big-IP and also includes links to relevant GlassFish documents. Check it out!
