Tomcat Cluster / Load Balancing

Hallo!
I have set up a Tomcat4 cluster with four tomcat instances. As webserver I use Apache2.
I want to run two different applications in my four tomcat instances. One application on two instances and the other on the other two instances. So one tomcat instance has only one application not both.
How can I configure the load balancing that if I want to access an application only the two instances that run this application are accessed?
The loadbalancer should not try to access an instance that does not run the desired application!
Kind regards
Jochen

What are you using as a Load Balancer? You using hardware like Big-IP or CoyotePoint or are you using software etc..

I want to use the load balancing ability of the Apache jk2 module!
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
