Slow Tomcat Startup


I am using Tomcat 7 on Centos 5.6 64 bit and using that for Jasper Reports integration Kit for Oracle Apex. The kit is available at http://www.opal-consulting.de/apex/f?p=20090928:5:0::NO:5::

The problem is when I add data source in the configuration file, Tomcat becomes very slow to startup. It works fine after that. I have about 15-20 datasources and tomcat is now taking over 6 minutes to startup.

Is there a way to make the startup fast without removing the datasources.

check this (last post)

Long DNS lookup timeouts coupled with huge numbers of URL lookups.
This can happen if you have lots of XML files being parsed and validated
against remote DTDs or Schemas. This is easily identified via a series
of thread dumps (you may be noticing a pattern, here).

Solutions: fix your DNS and/or use something like XML Catalog

You can check one more thing.

Write down a simple java program that will try to connect the datasource which you are configuring in tomcat.
Run this program on the machine where you try to run tomcat and check how much time does it to connect to that data source.

There are cases where connection is taking time to connect to the particular machine (like db connection, remote calls, webservice calls etc.)
