Which version of Tomcat did you download?

If 5.0.x , it will run on 1.4.x jdk.

If 5.5.x, it will run on 1.5 (or 5.0) JRE  and with the compat patch it will 
also run on jdk 1.4.x

I think the new 1.5 java has an update feature and some other things??? 
built into it that has it phone home. The applet should still run. I have 
see the new logo on my desktop and applets run fine.

You may try to block the app from getting to the Internet with a firewall.

The 1.5 adds a Java setting console to Control Panel. It allows you to turn 
off updates and make other changes.
