yes, but embedding tomcat is part of a wider plan of building an 
internal management system

yes, i'm sure. work wipe out occurs in the shutdown hook of the embedded 
tomcat and when it terminates the related java process no
longer exists (just like when you kill a process on linux)

as said, when we wipe out, tomcat is running no more, so it couldn't 
clear the folder on its own
