vCenter has webaccess allow administrators to manage vCenter through the browser, it also accept API calls to vCenter. The web service behind it is Tomcat. You don't need to worry about the Tomcat setting since VMware ensure it will never break! :). Ok if you really want to take a look under the hood. You can!
you will need to find the file:
"C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\VirtualCenter Server\tomcat\conf\tomcat-users.xml"

and add:

Now you need to restart "Vmware Infrastracture web access" service
By default the tomcat uses port 8086
you can now open a browser point it to
http://server_name:8086/
click on "
Tomcat Manager"
Type in your user name and password. In my case is "admin"/"test"
Now you just logged into Tomcat Manager

Note: This will only work on VI3 since vSphere uses different version of tomcat.
