Spring MVC web application on iOS

I support a Spring MVC web application that runs on Tomcat 7 and writes to a Microsoft SQL Server database.
How easy is it to have this application support/run on the iOS framework i.e. iPhone, iPad etc.
Are there any automated tools to do this?

Thanks in advance.

I assume you mean besides just hitting the web app with a browser?

Are you thinking that you need to run Tomcat on the device?

This is a web application that is already running on Tomcat and is in use via traditional displays.
What I am seeking help on is making it iOS compatible.

Thanks.

Still not sure what you are after. Unless it uses Flash, just about any web page is compatible with iOS browsers.

Or are you asking about responsive design which has nothing at all to do with Tomcat or Spring or any other server-side technology?

Responsive design it is.
Are there any tools that would help me with it?

Thanks,

HTML, JavaScript and CSS.

To a smaller extent frameworks like jQuery Mobile and iUI, and grid-based CSS frameworks such as Bootstrap.

Even with tools, it needs to be hand-crafted with love.
