In the future, put all the information a reader needs to understand
your question in a single post. Otherwise, you run the risk of lazy
people (like me) not bothering to go hunting for your other post just
to get the back-story. (It also irritates archive-hunters). So, I'm
proceeding with no existing information, other than you probably have
a load-balanced Tomcat configuration.

Are you using sticky sessions and does the load-balancer stick them
properly? If so, enable Tomcat's parallel deployment and do your
deployments "properly" according to those rules. You can update any
server at any time you want. Don't forget to undeploy the old
version(s) after users sessions expire.

You could also couple that with the "farm web deployer" which I myself
have never used.

You could do that, but I think it's just more work with little benefit.
