Unless this is a purely academic exercise and you insist in doing it "in Tomcat", my 
feeling is that this kind of scheme would be much better implemented at the level of a 
front-end, which could conditionnally forward requests to one or more Tomcat 
instances/ports/applications, based on whatever discrimination factors you choose to 
In other words, why re-invent the wheel ?
