Some resources are allocated only on the first access.

E.g. starting servlets, or obtaining database connections from a pool.
Unless you obtain a connection there is no knowing that the database
is accessible.

1) Consider implementing a Listener.

2) Note the bindOnInit option on Connector

though binding while Tomcat initializes is necessary to be able to
access privileged ports. If Tomcat is run with jsvc, jsvc drops the
privileges once the initialization succeeds.

3) There was once discussion on this list about starting Connectors
programmatically. That is, Tomcat starts without connectors (or with
stopped connectors), somewhat like a hot standby, and starts the
connectors when everything else is ready.
