Except they weren't designed to be as extensible as you'd like them to,
with generic MBean support like JBoss provides. ;0

You don't need to use them if you use JBoss.  Part of the fun of a J2EE
server is that you only use the pieces you need, but if you find that
you need something else, it's usually already available.  So I'd suggest
you try JBoss, integrated with tomcat, for the best of both worlds ;)
Use JBoss' advanced and yet easy to use MBean support, and tomcat for
servlets / JSPs, etc.

Good luck,
