Harsha - Some more info for clarity.
What is your application layered structure? Do you have web server? please note that mod_cluster is a httpd based loadbalancer. The whole configuration has two parts one one httpd side and the other (java config) one targeted to backend servers ( could be AS/JBossWeb/Tomcat).
Thanks for the reply.
We have a GWT - Spring based application deployed on JBoss 4.2.3 AS.
I have also set up HTTPD.
The confusion I had was wrt the java config of the loadbalancer.
So can I set up the java config of the load balancer on JBoss 5.1.0 AS and access the application deployed on JBoss 4.2.3.
So you have 2 AS one running 5.10 and the other one 4.2.3 and the same httpd as front-end?
I have 2 AS.
My application deployed on 4.2.3 (this is running on a linux server).
Have setup HTTPD on my local windows system.
Am configuring the java config part of load balancer on 5.1.0 on my local windows system.
Thanks for trying to answer my questions.
I had totally misunderstood the documentation because of which I was trying to set up java config on one server and deploying the application on another.
As of now I have installed the httpd on my windows local and made java config configuratioin on my cluster nodes running on JBoss 4.2.3.
One doubt that I had was, in the documentation of mod_cluster the minimum requirement is mentioned as JBoss 5.0 +.
So would me trying to set up configuration on JBoss 4.2.3 work.
And moreover in the Chapter 6 (server side configuration), the explanation is more specific to JBoss 5.0 +.
So would me trying to run mod_cluster on JBoss 4.2.3 work?
