You can use wget to make secure requests, but the basic authentication form has a problem in that if anyone can see your command line, they can see the userid/password.
There are other ways to remotely control Tomcat however. The JSR-88 interface is primarily about remote deployment, but it can also start and stop webapps. The Management EJB (MEJB) is worth looking into. As is JMX.
Ant has a Tomcat control plugin. I think it's acting as a JSR-88 client, but I'm not sure. Anyway, a lot of people use it.
An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
