A much better way - at least for tomcat5, but it should work for tomcat4 - 
is to use JMX. The server and service should be registered. We expose the
"managedResource" attribute of type "Object" - you can cast it to the 
right type.

All you need is to know the object name of the server.

BTW, I would strongly suggest dealing with the Service - this way your 
code will work for embeded catalina ( for example jboss doesn't use Server,
and AFAIK it is not required ). 

Static methods are not very nice :-)
