Disabling keep-alive connections in Tomcat

I was using TcpTrace utility to dump my HTTP requests/responses. But the problem was that my Server (Tomcat) was using keep-alive connections and bcoz of this, the output in TcpTrace was all muddled up.
Disabling keep-alive connections in Tomcat 5.5 was quite simple:

Just add the maxKeepAliveRequests="1" attribute to the Connector tag in server.xml
