“Federation” is a term that has been floating around the modern parlance of enterprise architecture and integration for a long while, but with the flood of interest in cloud computing, it is back in the spotlight.

Part three, Designing an Efficient, Reliable and Productive Application Server Cluster, is going to teach you how to create a simple cluster. This blog is not a step-by-step tutorial on cluster creation, but we will provide you with the tools you can use to implement a cluster rapidly and effectively.
