I understand your question to be: how to create an instance of a Java class when Tomcat is started.
Tomcat will automatically create instances of servlets that are marked with a web.xml entry like:

see the entry for the default servlet in conf/web.xml for an example.
You can have then have the servlet init method create an instance of the class.
If that is not what you mean, please explain what this class is for.
