For tomcat, the Engine is the servlet engine implementation. It is not right
to have multiple engines in the same domain - just like you wouldn't want
to have 2 distinct j2eeServers in the same domain. 

If you create multiple servlet engines - that's fine, as long as you don't
mix them togheter. 

I think it is ok to have the WebModules registered in both domains, or
registered in a separate domain - i.e. the j2eeServer will manage the 
modules lifecycle ( which is probably the case ). Engine still needs to
find them - or the Context still needs to find the Engine, either by double
registration or by using an attribute. However logically the WebModule
can belong to the j2eeServer domain - I see no problem with that, it's
the server that actually deploys/create/manage them.
