My suggestion here would be to:
  1. When a JAR file has been scanned, then save the result of the scan to the work directory
   - name of jar
   - timestamp of the JAR
   - MD5 of jar
   - size of jar in bytes
   - result of scan

This would serve a jar scanner cache. If I restart tomcat several times without any changes
to the libraries, there is no need to incur the 
12 second startup time. While 30s -> 12s is a dramatic improvement, you can bring down
the penalty of a scan even more.

Ideally there is also an option to disable the cache, for the skeptic ones :)
