Ok, then lets looks at the fundamental issue then.


Why share a Tomcat instance at all?

Why don't they simply host their own Tomcat on their own machine? Or if
they're all on the same server, and you have the capacity, let them host it
themselves out of their home directories.

I agree that Tomcat is the lightest weight thing on the planet, but for
development it's not bad. Doing cross Unix/Windows development is pretty
painless until you need "absolute" paths, but those are pretty rare in most
webapps. Tomcat runs fine under Windows. We must have 50+ instances of
Tomcat running on and off in our group. Then it becomes a source
code/project management issue, but you have that anyway.

It's certainly not a licensing issue :-).

I understand why school labs do this, but companies usually have more
resources for things like this.
