The explosive growth of the World Wide Web has raised great
concerns regarding many challenges - performance, scalability and
availability of the Web system. Consequently, Web site builders are
increasingly to construct their Web servers as distributed system for
solving these problems, and this trend is likely to accelerate. In
such systems, a group of loosely-coupled hosts will work together to
serve as a single virtual server. Although the distributed server can
provide compelling performance and accommodate the growth of web
traffic, it inevitably increases the complexity of system
administration. In this paper, we exploit the advantages of Java to
design and implement an administration system for addressing this
