This task Stop Tomcat -> Update some data -> Start Tomcat.

Not a direct answer to your question, but maybe a bit of lateral and logical thinking here

Why would one run a virus scanner permanently on a Tomcat server ?
And why run it on most of the disk space, as opposed to just the few directories where 
some client /might/ upload external files ?
Do the applications even allow clients to put files on that server ?
