Tomcat Environment Variables

Right now I have configuration files for different development environments. Dev, Stage, and Prod. When my webapp starts I read in a variable I set in tomcat to determine which config file(s) I need.

What I'd like to do is specify the variable when I start Tomcat rather than in the startup.bat/sh file.

Any tips?

Thanks.
