I have moved this to the Tomcat forum.

"Plzzzzz.............." is not a word. please use only real words when posting.

I would first try to determine if Tomcat is actually a bottlneck.

Have you load tested your app while running it under a profiler like JProbe or OpitmizeIt to see where your bottlenecks actually are?
If not, you could be wasting a lot of time fussing with the app server.

A good tool for simulating a load on a web server is Httpclient in the apache commons project.

It will take a bit of work, but you really should simulate a load using realistic requests so - like Ben says - you can see if Tomcat really is a bottleneck. If your app does ANY database queries, Im betting on the DB connection being the bottleneck.
