Apache CXF: Implementing Failover and Load Balancing

Free Resource

Discover how you can get APIs and microservices to work at true enterprise scale.

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.

APIs and microservices are maturing, quickly. Learn what it takes to manage modern APIs and microservices at enterprise scale.
