Yes, that's a generally accepted practice: developers shouldn't check in
something that doesn't compile.

Yes, again a generally accepted practice: announce a build and/or
lockdown time, by which everything must be checked in.

Yes, locally if you don't have the shared resources to do it on your dev
server.  Your server resources are better spent on integration and load
testing (and of course serving the production site).

Note that nothing in your question is specific to Tomcat or even J2EE.
These principles are applicable (and these issues arise) for any
multi-developer project, no matter the language or platform.
