So, you want a vendor-supported solution and you're asking a
volunteer-based community? I think you should be talking to RedHat.

Honestly, this kind of thing really needs to be heavily customized to
meet your needs. Just because my port-assignment conventions make
sense to me doesn't mean they will work for you.

For example, most of our webapps (which run in their own JVM/Tomcat
combinations) have a localhost-only HTTP connector which other webapps
can use as a loopback connection. That means that each webapp actually
requires *three* port numbers: one for AJP (for proxying from actual
clients), one for shutdown, and one for localhost-HTTP. (I suppose
technically, we could disable socket-based shutdown to free-up a port,
but the convenience of a clean shutdown is a nice thing to have).

If I were to submit my build scripts and get them included (even as an
unsupported contribution) in the distribution, they would need
tweaking to be useful to you, and then you have the same maintenance
issue that you would have with my (original) scripts: anytime an
update was released, you'd have to merge-in any changes. I suspect the
same will be true with any vendor-specific solution unless you pay
them directly to support something custom-built.
