Subject Re: FW: General / Special cause under which TOMCAT Crash been noticed

If your tomcat instance crashes, it'll be sudden and not anything the
tomcat instance itself can do anything about.  Try looking into a cron
script or some other scheduled task external to tomcat.  The script
could make a request of tomcat every minute or so and restart it if it's
down.  Generally if doing this via cron script, the standard output of
the script can be automatically emailed to anyone you wish.
