I believe this is covered elsewhere on the list, recently, and has
something to do with the glibc version supplied with this version of

The JDK is needed because the JRE doesn't include a compiler, and
tomcat needs one to compile the servlets generated from jsp files. You
might in theory be able to run it with the JRE if you added the
appropriate jar files.

I can't comment on this, but I would suggest that anyone running a
server should examine the configuration /before/ starting it for the
first time. Had you done this, it would have been apparent which ports
were in use. Besides which, the initial configuration also provides
quite reasonable documentation on the possible config options, so
there are other reasons to want to look at it.
