So these are 10 separate boxes?
I think the clarification is necessary because "application server" in
the context of java usually refers to the J2EE or (sometimes) servlet
container. Are you taling about 10 instances of tomcat each running on
their own box?

but that this scenario isn't happening in tomcat.
