Due to what I believe is largely temporary fad-like marketing pressure, I am quite 
interested in the general subject myself, but I do not understand your question.
What is it precisely that you would want Tomcat to do (that it does not yet do currently)

If some "app" on some device makes a TCP connection to a Tomcat server, and then talks 
HTTP with it, Tomcat will handle this fine.  And if this app then requests a particular 
context (webapp) in Tomcat, and they understand eachother, everything should work also as

expected. So what is the issue ?

Or am I missing something ?
