    Why not ?
    It'll be just like any other reverse proxy/loadbalancer , but why do you need to use it with WACS ?
    Why would you ever want to use WACS now that the restful is part of tomcat deployment (BI4.2 SP5) ?

    • WACS can't be clustered, but you can have a proxy/LB in front of it and those are the same as with any webapp server (tomcat/WL/WebSphere).
      From BOE perspective we require session persistence, no caching or filtering and that's it.

      And I'd recommend moving to 4.2 Sp5 and stop using WACS all together.
