I was just going through documents about clustering of servlet in Weblogic 5.1 . So far i have understand that , there is something name HttpClusterServlet in the webserver(s) [ where the client request first comes] which takes the responsibility to redirect the requets to the proper server in the cluster . HttpClusterServlet also encapsulate the logic of load balancing and looking for th secondary sever in case of fail of the primary one.
Now my question is -
what this HttpClusterServlet is ? is it a class provided by the weblogic ? which i need to just add in the properties file and rest of the things will be done automatically ?
As i don't have a clustering license copy of weblogic , this area is not clear to me .
please help me out
thanks in advance
