There is a whole page here, if you understand it (I don't) :

Also, there is a special port defined in the server.xml/<Server> tag, 
which I believe works as follows :
- connect to it (allowed from localhost only)
- send the defined shutdown string
I assume that Tomcat will then, gracefully, stop serving new requests, 
finish the ones being processed right now, and shut itself down nicely.

There does not seem to exist a "graceful restart" however.

I may be wrong of course, but in that case expect a few additional 
contradictory messages right here in the next few minutes..
There's nothing like a wrong guess to trigger them.
