This is normal for Tomcat, which uses many threads for its operations;
it gets a bunch ready to handle incoming requests, for example. It's
not relevant to your problem.

It's hard to guess what's wrong with your application, although it's most
certainly due to your application's coding. Are you writing thread-safe
code, i.e. being careful with class variables and static variables so multiple
threads accessing the application at the same time aren't getting their
data confused? Where are the socket exceptions coming from, there may
be a problem with your database related code.
