Apache CXF: Implementing Failover and Load Balancing

Free Resource

The State of API Integration 2018: Get Cloud Elements’ report for the most comprehensive breakdown of the API integration industry’s past, present, and future.

If you look at CXF feature list at http://cxf.apache.org/docs/featureslist.html, you’d find something called FAILOVER, and the description reads

“Feature that allows clients to failover from the initial target endpoint to another, compatible endpoint for the target service”.

I thought of exploring this a bit, and googled. Couldn’t find much in CXF docs. But, found an article here: http://www.javacodegeeks.com/2011/06/apache-cxf-load-balancing-failover.html, that explains how to do Failover/Load Balancing. I’ll have to try this myself and write here. So, for now, if you’re interested to know this in detail, please visit the mentioned link.
