can I take a free product like Liberty 8.5 profile and add it as a node to a full fledged Websphere ND cluster ?
ASAIK : Websphere 8.5 ND can install/start/stop/configure a Liberty 8.5 profile (via the Job Manager menu) , however, since Liberty profile is missing the node agent notion, it can't participate in a "classic" Websphere ND (8.5) cluster.
I doubt if a Liberty profile can communicate with the WLM (Work Load Manager) inside a Websphere ND cell or share the session replication models that ND nodes support directly.
So what can be done ?
Well, since we are talking about Worklight and most of the communication is HTTP and configuration is stored in a database then we can create/duplicate several independent Liberty installations and then put an HTTP load balancer in front of them (for example: IBM Edge Component).
If you install a them via DMGR (deployment manager) then it may be a bit easier, but those servers will not be part of a ND cluster.
The load balancer can should the sticky-session property (read Worklight's Admin guide)
You will need to read few technical installation manuals to learn how to configure and install a HTTP load balancer, but
I believe that as long as the database can support the (many) web servers load - such configuration can serve your needs.
Does it answer your question ?
