This is likely to be the key to your problem.  Several major things from the Servlet 2.0 API
were deprecated -- for example, the ServletContext.getServlet() method now returns null, and
you can no longer use an HttpSessionContext at all -- so if this application requires those
features of 2.0, it will not run under Tomcat.

Without source code, (in particular for the init() method of the com.novell.webaccess.WebAccessServlet
class), there isn't much anyone can do to help you further.
