Load balancing in rmi

Hello,
Suppose a rmi server is running and an object is instantiaated. now clients over internet can invoke methods on that object. when number of hits is low then it's ok. but when it's huge things may not work as desired. so i want to load balance. may be, more than one rmi server will be running and some one will decide which server to contact to. Is there any statnadard method to do it? any tool which can help it?

You can do that on your server.
You build an dispacther server that only forward messages to child servers that do the task. When last child server created is to busy then it will create another one (with another thread of execution of course) and schedule the task to the new child server. And so on ...

In Java1.2 one option is there i.e
Step 1:
Make the appropriate imports in the implementation class
import java.rmi.*;
import java.rmi.activation.*;
Step 2:
Extend your class from java.rmi.activation.Activatable

public class ActivatableImplementation extends Activatable
    implements examples.activation.MyRemoteInterface {

Step 3:
Declare a two-argument constructor in the implementation class
public ActivatableImplementation(ActivationID id, MarshalledObject data)
    throws RemoteException {
    // Register the object with the activation system
    // then export it on an anonymous port
    super(id, 0);
}

Step 4:
Implement the remote interface method(s)

public Object callMeRemotely() throws RemoteException {
    return "Success";
}



run rmid (rmi deamon) on server machine

This process uses the concept of lazy activation .
