The Tomcat Manager is usefull and follows with the basic installation.
But you need to define a "manager" role in order to login:
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\conf\tomcat-users.xml
What you need to do is adding an extra role definition called manager and add this role to your preferred user.
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<user username="admin" password="admin" roles="admin,manager"/>
Inside the Manager can you start/stop applications (like Streamstudio) without the need to restart the whole Tomcat instance.
It is also possible to undeploy an application before deploying for example an update.
