I have a clustered environment with multiple Was instances and clones.
Are there any Was related java class, JNDI entry or system property
(System.getProperty()) that could be used in my java applicalition to tell in which node my application is running?

Usually hostname will be node name for websphere in a clustered environment.You can use the following code(jsp code) to get the hostname in ur java application.This is for solaris environment.

<%@ page import="java.io.*"%>
String command = "hostname";
Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(command);
String s =null;
DataInputStream in = new DataInputStream(p.getInputStream());
while ((s = in.readLine()) != null) {
out.println("Hostname is: " + s);
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
