    JBoss Web Server in an HA environment

    Leonardo Grimberg Newbie

      Hi,
      I have been working/implementing solution with JBoss app server for many years, but I am completly new to JBoss Web Server, so I have few questtions:
      1) Is JBoss web server, at the same time a full app server.
      2) For HA websites I am used to implement a layer for servers (web servers) load balanced by software or hardware, and a second layer of servers (application server) in a cluster environment.
      So,here the question, With Jboss Web Server, do I need these two layers of server, or I could have a set of jboss web servers in a cluster, load balanced environment without losing performance.

      I know this is a very deep topic, I am just looking for some highlights.....
      Thanks,
      Leo
