A newbie to the concept of clustering, I wanted to know how static data in an application is handled when the servers are put in a cluster. My static data is not bean level data - it is managed by simple helper classes and is maintained simply for performance reasons on certain frequently accessed but seldom modified data. So will this static data be replicated on all the servers ? And if yes, is there any way of maintaining it on only one server and letting the other servers know about it so that they do not create their own cache but access the common one ? I am maintaining the data as simple hashtables.
Would appreciate any ideas ! Thanks in advance.

no, we have no way to solve that for you.
You will have to mimic this behaviour using the DistributedState service for example.
