Adding SSL support to Tomcat does not noticeably extend the amount of time it takes Tomcat to start up. Tomcat itself usually takes less than 3 seconds to initialize, so most of the startup time is in the webapps, not in Tomcat.
I think your problem is in assigning the SSL (https) connector to port 8080. Port 8080 is the port for non-SSL (regular http) communications. The normal port for https connections is 8443. You cannot use the same port for both types of connections.
"privilege" comes from the Latin words for "private" and "law" (legal) and dates to feudal times. To "claim privilege" meant that you were above the laws that applied to the common people.
