In summary I am a Christian, husband, father of two adopted children (Guatemala and Korea), and a software developer immersed in Web technologies for almost 15 years. I have experience leading projects on various technology fronts, including Java, .NET (C#) and PHP, and I've used MySQL, SQL, PL/SQL and Oracle for relational database development. I'm currently immersed in Java EE and the Spring Framework, and I enjoy working most with the Java technology stack.

Very cool. In JPA I'm used to associating a single entity with a single table, but once I researched the JPA discriminant column like you described it makes perfect sense. I think an enum is the best way to identify the implementation. Basically a TaskType relationship table. Does that sound like what you were giving as an example?

What would be stored in the discriminant column, or tables with specific attributes? I don't have additional state to load. It really is just a different implementation. I guess I'm asking what that "identity" would be, and how I might initialize and cache the instance (in a theoretical sense).

@RossPatterson Do you find that the Apache equivalent sheds significant light on most problems, or is it hit and miss?

While this is the optimum solution I do wonder about the cost effectiveness. Our network operations finally received the budget for a staging instance of our load balancer, but that was an expensive decision. I'm curious if there are open source load balancers that emulate their higher load professional counterparts. I know it still isn't entirely 1-to-1, but maybe a little closer?
