Can load balancing be achieved with the open source edition (3.1.2) without using the load-balance plug-in?
I have the following configuration:
2 nodes (different machines), single cluster of 3 instances on each node... currently, no HTTP server set up (CentOS 6 machines)
I want to enable load balancing, but, not sure exactly how to do this with the open source edition... I have NetScaler available...

I'm trying to determine the best approach, while still using the OSE.

Thanks.

You can use apache + mod_jk. You can refer to Amy's blog

on the same. There are other blogs available as well. Just google :-)

Thanks,

There's even official documentation. See Chapter 7, Configuring HTTP
Load Balancing in /GlassFish Server Open Source Edition High
Availability Administration Guide/ in the all-in-one documentation
archive
.
