We have many webservices applications running on Tomcat/webspere. Is there any mechanism by which we can constantly poll these applications to make sure they are up and running. There should be a notification(email) for any failure.

Couple of ways:

1) Create a method in the webservice which can be used to poll the health of webservice.
2) I am not sure of how your webserices are built, but obtain the wsdl file by typing in the required url in the browser. For example to obtain wsdl file from weblogic you can type http://myServer:port/MyProject/MyWebService.jws?WSDL
3) If have a UDDI registry being used then I think you can inquire about a webservice.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
