Methods to start Tomcat from an application

Hello all,
My question is related to the methods used to start Tomcat from inside the application. So far I've seen that method #1 (see below) is widely used. I've been thinking to use a simpler method for doing this so I wrote methdod #2 (see below). Is the overhead (Class.forName(), getMethod(), invoke()) from method #1 really necessary ?

Method #1:
""""""""""

Method #2:
""""""""""

TIA,
Pat
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
