Only if your application can't utilise resources properly. If your
application fails to scale, fails to use all available cores or memory, you
should have multiple instances. Also if your total memory is insanely high,
like way above 64 Gb, you'd be better off with multiple instances. Also if
your app uses a lot of synchronisation, having multiple tomcats can help.
However, all of that is pretty improbable with a mac mini.
Rule of thumb: if you can bring your app with tomcat to near 100% CPU or
memory usage, no need for multiple instances.

P.S. kudos to you for hosting on macs ;-) Crazy but fun ;-)
