Custom servlet installed with JIRA's Tomcat

I am looking for a way to simply automate the use of the JIRA CLI. I have a number of build machines that will need to run a CLI commands after each build. I woudl prefer not to have to install the CLI tool on each build machine.

One option is to install an second Tomcat on our JIRA server or another server and run a simple servlet that will execute the CLI tool.

I was wondering though if I could use the built in Tomcat that came with the JIRA install? I would only be running a single class file.

JIra is just an web app. Of course you can register your own servlet in web.xml, but you must take care at updates / upgrades of Jira. Other than that, usual suff apply: make sure not to do an OOM (or affect its perf) then blame Jira for that ;)
