Are you asking about adding into the 3rd tier? What is the 'backend'? Depending on what it is you may be able to put it behind a load balancer (eg: if it's a service); if it's a DB you may be able to use HA JDBC or another proxy. What I do (currently) is update the configuration of my middle tier systems by taking them out of rotation 1 at a time, updating the config (adding the additional back-ends and then restarting) and putting them back into rotation in the front-end LB. This is the same process I use for doing rolling releases. Is that what you're asking about?

start actually works for any file type you can double-click on (word documents, xls files, etc) as well as drive mappings (not just the current working directory).
