At he moment Tomcat only supports JSP. You can put Tomcat as a service, use
the filter in IIS (isapi_redir.dll) and IIS will serve ASP code and Tomcat
the JSP one. Once all you code has been ported to JSP you can thrown IIS and
use just Tomcat.

BTW, I'm using it this way in OpenBSD v2.7 and Mac OS 9 ... it was a no pain
installation, and smooth running (the Mac OS 9 is for my notepad Apple
PowerBook, and OpenBSD for my home server: an Intel Pentium 133 Mhz/80 MB
