This is really not necessary. We use the Tomcat Host Manager Application,
along with our own custom scripts to deploy new virtual hosts and remove
virtual hosts. It's pretty easy. The advantage of doing that is you can
create aliases within the customer's domain. I.E.

The only thing about doing it this way is you have to create your own
startup script that will generate a server.xml on the fly. IOW, when you
start Tomcat, go through and figure out all of the virtual host names, and
generate the entries in the server.xml before calling
