Since Tomcat is an open source project your best avenue for support is probably through the
mailing list.

My company, Signature Domains ( ) uses Tomcat 4 for all of
our servlet engine needs.  I
also use it for other web sites of my own.  Considering that Tomcat is the reference implementation
for Sun's Servlet
API I imagine there are MANY companies out there using it.

Apache doesn't have a "help" number as you are expecting it.  You may want to look at to gain a better understanding of what Apache is.

I hope I have answered your questions well.  Please note that I am only giving you information
which is available on the
Apache and Jakarta web sites.  I am not a representative of the Apache Software Foundation,
only a very satisfied user
of Apache products.
