Hi *;

I was rude enough to post a quick reply there, hope it'll be of some help

For what I see, most of these questions basically come down not to JSPWiki
related stuff but rather to fundamental issues of administering a given
servlet container (tomcat, glassfish v3, whatever). That's where I see the
problem of having these packages available to "simply" be installed using
apt-get in Ubuntu is tempting also to those not at all knowing how to, say,
deploy a Java EE .war module...

Personally, seeing too many "badness" arising from distribution specific
packaging of Java and related technologies, so far I have come to a
conclusion of not to use any of these off .debs anyhow but rather use the
"plain" versions in all these cases (not mentioning the understanding that
packaging a Java application which is per se platform-agnostic in a pretty
much platform dependent format such as .deb seems sort of funny). Maybe
however a "batteries included" version of JSPWiki to come with embedded
tomcat/jetty would help much here...
