Chapter 7

Configuring Web Servers for HTTP Load Balancing

This chapter explains how to install the GlassFish Loadbalancer Plug-In. This chapter also explains how to perform the configuration steps that may be required for your particular web server before installing the Loadbalancer Plug-In.

The Loadbalancer Plug-In is available for separate download for customers who are using Oracle GlassFish Server 3.1. Note that the Loadbalancer Plug-In is not available for GlassFish Server Open Source Edition 3.1.

The Loadbalancer Plug-In is shipped as a ZIP bundle that you install after installing and configuring GlassFish Server and your desired web server. The plug-in is installed by means of a graphical GlassFish Loadbalancer Configurator that helps you configure your web server and GlassFish Server to work together.

In most cases, the GlassFish Loadbalancer Configurator automatically configures GlassFish Server and your web server, and no manual intervention is required. However, depending on your web server configuration, there may be some manual configuration steps that you need to perform after installing the Loadbalancer Plug-In.
