Hi
I need to setup a cluster of Tomcats in order to provide failover support. I know about tomcat to the extent of how to deploy a webapp on it and use that webapp. Otherwise I am a newbie to clustering. I went through the link http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/cluster-howto.html but that did not help me much. Could you please help me out or pint me to some simple documentation on how to do this?

Regards
Satya Deep

The page you've posted walks you through this step by step, give you an overview, describes the architecture, and has example code for the configuration files. How does this not help?
What part has you stumped?

Hi Ben
Thanks for posting. Actually the load-balancing part got me stumped.
Yes I agree the information given on http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/cluster-howto.html is pretty thorough. But I realized it only after I had gone through Wrox.Professional.Apache.Tomcat.6. ;)
I would recommend it as a good read if you are absolutely new to clustering and load balancing.
