Bite the bullet and create all those servers.  Works for us...

Actually, we go one step further.  Instead of virtual servers, we
give each developer their own *real* Apache/JRun pair.  I presume
this would work equally well for Tomcat, but we haven't tried it.
Dunno about JSP though; I've never used that.

  - if a user is testing a buggy version of some class, it
    doesn't break other users' testing (assuming they fix the
    bug before they commit, of course)

  - a user can stop and restart their server at will, without
    affecting others' work

  - everybody gets their own logs; they don't have to pore
    through everyone else's debug traces

Sure it's a lot of Apaches, but they're all idle 100-epsilon
percent of the time, so the only resource they consume that
really matters is swap space.

  - Does *not* work with absolute URLs.

  - Likewise, you have to figure out a way to virtualize access
    to other resources, such as Java properties files.
But then, you already have live and development servers running,
so you've presumably already dealt with these issues.
