It depends on what the problem actually is, and when it occurs.

If you do all of your initialisation in a ServletContextListener and
throw an exception on fail, then the context won't start up.

This is not the same as shutting it down after a certain period of time
and after a fault condition occurs.

Where is the code which is going to shut down the application?
Presumably outside of the application itself?
