I don't think that Tomcat does handle that sort of requests. As stated
somewhere in the docs Tomcat is not a webserver replacement, so why
should one like to have web-server functionallity? Also I wouldn't use
the Tomcat standalone in a production environment. Try to get rid of
that setup, place Tomcat behind a web server like Apache that that
handles that kind of stuff and let Tomcat do what it's design for:
handle applications.
