Can someone explain what is the meaning of <distrbutable> tag in web.xml? If the tag is not present, does it mean my web application cannot run in a cluster?

Glancing at the servlet spec, the implications of "distributable" appear to be pretty complicated. You should download the spec from Sun's web site for the complete story.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
