Obviously, yes.

Of course. Just have a loook at server.xml

So far, the JVM use the memory as a whole, even if you have many containers.
If tomcat or jetty sucks all the memory, then you are dead.

This is a totally different concern. Nothing forbid you to create a webapp
including an embedded ADS. This has already been done (I had two student
this year who provided such a webapp). We wanted to embed a container so
that we don't depend on any other container if we want to offer DSML through
HTTP, standalone. Having to setup N product when you want to play with ADS
and DSML is not very convenient.

However, the idea of building a standalone webapp with ADS embedded is not
stupid, and woth to spend some time on it. Wanna do it ?
