After perusing the above a couple of times, my interpretation goes like 
this :

First, in summary, the question may boil down to : if the 
Tomcat/conf/server.xml file is modified (timestamp changed), does Tomcat 
automatically reload itself ? after some time ?

I kind of understand that the above means that a Tomcat application 
dynamically modifies the server.xml to add a new Host, and that as soon 
as this is the case, the OP would like Tomcat to notice and enable this 
new Host.
I also guess that it seems that whenever this application does the 
above, currently the new site is not immediately available, but becomes 
available after about an hour.
The question in my mind (if it is true that Tomcat would reload if 
server.xml is changed) is if the experienced delay may not just be the 
time needed for the DNS system to propagate the new domain address ?
