If you mean "why would you want to load balance" then the answer is to read some of these articles:

-- http://www.javaworld.com/jw-02-2001/jw-0223-extremescale.html

-- http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2001/09/26/load.html

The basics of load balancing in most articles assumes that you will use multiple independant physical machines.

There are situations where you might attempt to use load balanning w/o seperate machines, though not many.

There is a nice article that has specific setup to use Tomcat in a highly scalable load balanced configuration:

(the first part of the article is pretty basic: http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2004/03/31/clustering.html)
