You can do it together with Apache HTTPD server and mod_jk which will do load balancing between different tomcat servers.

Thanks for your response. Both the links were useful.
Though, i couldn't download the software thro' the link provided in the site.

First Option is to use Apache Webserver along with mod_jk.

Another option is to do load balancing in Tomcat itself.
For this method, Apache Web Server is not required is it ?  
Any example available which explains the implementation ?
