We use ant for this purpose. We just create a server.xml template with
replaceable parameters embedded in the file and then use ant's filtering
capability when copying the template to the actual deployment location
to do the replacements for us.

I don't know if that fits into your deployment strategy, but we've kind
of built ours around that, so it works well for us ;)
