Yes, that's possible. Check the conf/server.xml file - it has maxThreads attributes for each Connector. Those limit the number of request processing threads Tomcat will spawn, and thus the maximum number of simultaneous requests Tomcat will work on.

Thanks Ulf for your reply
the maximum number of simultaneous requests
I know that it means the maximum no. of requests it can process at a time. That would also mean, that, THAT is the maximum no. of requests it will accept anytime right ?

I'm not sure if connections beyond the max are rejected, or put into a queue for eventual servicing. You'd have to consult the source for that.
