Read an updated article on how to configure load balancing for Sun Java System Access Manager.
Given that guarantees are a myth, solutions that ensure availability in case of server failures afford productivity, not to mention peace of mind. Just off the press on developers.sun.com is a technical article that describes such a solution:
Updated: Configuring Load Balancing for Sun Java System Access Manager 2005Q1
Originally published in March, the article walks you through the procedures for installation, configuration, and testing. Also included are troubleshooting tips and a suggestion to beef up the setup for high availability, scalability, and session failover.
In this new edition, Sun market development engineer Xinfeng Liu and I corrected a configuration step and added explanatory notes.
Special thanks to Tim Rault-Smith, who graciously reviewed and tested the procedures and made right-on suggestions.
