Subject Re: starting and stoppping tomcat

I think you need to rethink your use cases here...

Exactly WHY do you need to start and stop tomcat from a button on a web 
Or do you really need to enable/disable some kind of function?

Generally speaking servers don't expect to be started or stopped by 
their clients - well, ok, sometimes you can stop a service by a client 
but almost by definition you can't start a service from a client...

Typically tomcat provides a way of processing requests received from 
remote web clients and arranges for the requests to be processed by a 
web application. Your application may have state which can be controlled 
by the request. This shouldn't normally affect tomcat's normal operation.
