Undeploying a web appl from a servlet?

We have developped a web application with a "start-up" servlet that reads an xml properties file and creates a connection pool. But it is possible that this servlet fails in his task for differents reasons (dbConnection disable, DTD check failed.....).
In this Case I would like not to start the application and only log the problem. I thought I could use System.exit(-1) but it is too drastic for me. Is there a way to undeploy the application on the web Server from this servlet?
