    What, exactly, do you mean by "cluster"?

    What do you want to load balence? just HTTP requests?
    Servlet requests?

    Apache can handle the former itself, JBoss the latter.

    Cluster means, it consists of more than one node, it's sharing the nfs filesystem and webserver will be running on the head node.

    My question, is load balancing possible for more than one cluster(tomcat webserver will be running head node of each cluster) from HTTP request level.

    apache web server can load balance the request .. use MODJK connector .. and in worker .properties file mention all the nodes .. it will balance the load in round robin algo..

    This is still not a good definition. What's a node?

    But rather than worrying about a weak term.

    JBoss and other containers can do load balancing when run on a group of servers. This is probably what you want.
