Tomcat Sockets handling

I am using a load generator sending requests towards tomcat. I try to re-use the same socket as long as possible, but after 100 requests / responsen, the Tomcat server sends a "Connection: close" in the Http-response, which forces my client to open a new socket.
How do I configure tomcat to just keep a connection alive and not close it? Which property is it ?
Can this be done from source code using a setProperty() method in my embedded tomcat ?
I agree. Here's the link:
