1. There are many versions of Tomcat. What one you are using / targeting?

2. Does your Spring initialization happens when the web applications
starts up, or when it is accessed for the first time? It depends on
your you configure spring contexts in your webapp.

3. Are you concerned with blank response while Tomcat itself starts
up,  or when you redeploy your application while Tomcat is already
