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.
If you actually want to physically restart the container, you'll want something at a lower level, perhaps webmin-like.
you can use Tcat Server from MuleSoft to restart one or more Tomcat instances from the console. It is free for use in development. you can download it from: http://www.mulesoft.com/download-tcat-server-enterprise-tomcat
Hope this helps.
