I have a WAS 6.0 Clustered environment setup. I have a client on a different box, outside of the WAS environment that is attempting to hit the cluster via EJB calls. Is it necessary to install the WAS Application Client to enable appropriate load balancing (I should note, that when we attempted to run a client without WAS Appl Client installed, it would NOT load balance at all, it would only hit one server)? Secondly, assuming the answer to the question above is yes, is it necessary to actually 'install' the application client, or is there a list of deployable jars that we can use instead of doing a formal install?
I do have the websphere horizontal cluster (Having Two Horizontal Nodes)in my project and the websphere plug-in (to be placed on web server) itself takes the great care of load balancing (Round-Robin). I don't think you need application client installation.

Sorry, i don't understand your answer. I am looking for a client to access my EJBs. this is not a Web application...
