Just a comment on what you say above :
When "Tomcat" opens a connection, it is really the JVM under which Tomcat runs which does

that, or in some cases some native code library.  And this JVM / native library uses the 
OS TCP/IP stack to do that.

What you see with netstat is the status of connections at the OS level.
In other words, if netstat says that a connection is "established", then that is what it 
is, and any code in Tomcat will see it that way, and has no way to see it otherwise.

So, on the face of it, there seems to be a contradiction between you saying on the one 
hand that the LDAP server closes the connection, and on the other hand that netstat shows

the connection still being active.
