Is it possible to restart tomcat via some kind of administration tools. I would like to restart tomcat remotely via an administration tool that is accessible via web? If yes could you point me to some of them. Thanks.

There's the tomcat manager.
This will allow you to restart any installed webapp, as well as deploying and undeploying webapps. It's pretty useful. Located by default at /manager/ on your tomcat installation. You may need to set up user settings, or use the defaults from tomcat-users.xml.

If you actually want to physically restart the container, you'll want something at a lower level, perhaps webmin-like.
