object caching

I have objects which hold rarely changing data. Ideally I'd like these objects to be loaded when Tomcat starts up, but have had a difficult time finding anything on google that is helpful. So far, I've only read about other frameworks that do this. Is there an easier way?

If I understand your problem correctly, you might find WhirlyCache to be helpful.
Whirlycache is a fast, configurable in-memory object cache for Java.

Is your problem concerning how to implement caching, or how to do anything
at start up in a web app? If it is the latter, you could always define a
servlet, set its load-on-startup property in your web.xml to 1, say, and then
in the servlet's init method, do whatever you need to do on application startup.

There is no emoticon for what I am feeling!

the servlet load-on-startup is perfect.
