>Really I nead the thread to be up the lifetime of Tomcat

No, you don't: at most you need the thread to be up for the lifetime of
your webapp.  If you really need it to be up for the lifetime of tomcat,
that's pretty terrible design.

Yes, there is: a ServletContextListener's contextInitialized  method to
start your thread, and contextDestroyed method to close and shutdown
your thread.  These types of things are exactly what
ServletContextListeners were designed for.
