Client w/Clustered Server question

I have an enterprise program running on a clustered server with multiple users. This enterprise program can execute .java extensions.

I currently have a java extension written that works great, only it executes on the server instead of the client. I'm pretty much a newbie to all this, but can anyone provide guidance on how to execute on the client-side.

I've seen mutiple posts relating to sockets, but not sure how this would be effected by a clustered server environment since there are mutiple IP addresses that the client may or may not be able to connect to.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

I'll pick out the one bit of this that I think I understand. When a client connects into a cluster, they usually use the address of a load balancer of some kind. That is a single IP address that divides the work among the nodes of the cluster. Sometimes it's a dedicated piece of hardware and sometimes it's a software part of the cluster.

Does that sound like something your cluster has?

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

What transport protocol is the client using? i.e. is it a web based application? If so, then to get the code to execute on the client side it would need to be in the form of an applet.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
