I don't know google apps. But for sure you can deploy many different 
wars on the same Tomcat instance.
So you can have let's say host/app1, host/app2 URLs, or with virtual 
hosts: host1/app, host2/app, etc.
With virtual hosts you can have multiple ROOT contexts as well.

Does it answer your question?
