props.put("hosts", "h1 h2 h3");
// host/port pair for each host alias
String host1 = "";
String host2 = "";
String host3 = "";
props.put("hosts.h1", host1);
props.put("hosts.h2", host2);
props.put("hosts.h3", host3);
props.put("host-selector", "random"); // For random host selection
// props.put("host-selector", "round_robin"); // For round-robin host
//                                            // selection
props.put("backoff", "true"); // Disabled by default.

props.put("maxBackoff", "10000"); // Defaults 0, which effectively
                                  // becomes 30000 ms

// Create the client with load balancing properties
RpcClient client = RpcClientFactory.getInstance(props);
