Load balancing on Tomcat server? I suppose you mean load balancing in front of Tomcat server(s)?

Why do you feel like you need to test the load balancing? Are you using a home-grown software load balancer?

Giju,
Do you mean testing that load balance is actually hitting 2 boxes or that it is hitting them evenly?

We test load balancing by making sure that both boxes are hit after a few queries by different users. We check this by verifying the log files.

We assume that the load balancing software is distributing the load properly.
