I would say that it would be helpful to know how your webapp detects
which "client" is being accessed. Are you sniffing that from the URL
in a single webapp, or are you configuring a single webapp for each
client (i.e. multiple webapps concurrently deployed).

If you are doing the former, then it shouldn't be tough to just sniff
a different part of the URL to determine the client. If the latter,
then you will either have to re-code your webapp to do URL-sniffing,
or just deploy your webapps into individual <Host>s with separate
appBase directories.
