What you are asking is to locate a resource on another server. If you 
want to do this you need to route the request to another server (setting 
tomcat as a proxy). You are more or less making the server the 
browser-client is talking to another client of a deeper server. More or 
less like the following illustration:

    browser ------> tomcat ------> another tomcat

In most cases it would be more wise to setup another webserver (such as 
apache) that routes your requests to different tomcat servers (using the 
mod_jk extension or something like that), which looks more like the 

                                                ------> first tomcat
    browser ------> proxy (apache for instance) ------> second tomcat
                                                ------> third tomcat

May I ask what you are actually trying to do?
