A couple of good books - both dealing with Tomcat.  "Inside Servlets" by
Dustin R. Callaway - Addison-Wesley is the publisher.  The other one is
"Core Servlets and Java Server Pages" - by Marty Hall.
Both have their strong points, and of course the "Core..." book, coming from
Sun deals with Tomcat extensively.  However, the "Inside Servlets" book has
a lot of valuable information, as well.
You could also take a look at a couple of other books if performance and
tuning are what you need.  "Java Performance and Scalability, Volume 1" by
Dov Bulka, and "Java Performance Tuning" by Josh Shirazi.  Both books deal
with performance and tuning your java code and the internals of the JVM.
This should be the starting point in developing optimum performance.
When it comes to optimization of your server, you'll be able to get to the
Tomcat source to do whatever you need to do, but you have to tune with your
overall application environment in mind.
