A little off-topic here . . .

This is analogous to the favicon.ico file. Mobile devices (Android and 
iOS at least) use these so you can create a bookmark on the desktop (or 
whatever the mobile devices call it).

So, make a nice icon (png, 100x100) for your site. Then users can 
bookmark the site and put the link on the desktop.

And yes, NetBeans seems to do that in order to figure out when Tomcat 
starts up (even if it's already started). It also issues a start command 
to the manager application for your web application (even if 
autoDeploy=true).

. . . . just my two cents.
