Not true - Tomcat is pure Java, and the 5.5 levels will run on a 1.4
JRE.

have you ever read catalina.bat? I have enough Java to be worrying about
that I don't want to have to start re-writing start-up scripts in DCL
(OpenVMS shell script).

That's hard to believe, otherwise JRE 1.4 would not be fully compatible
with the Java spec.

After 3 years working with OpenVMS I can assure you there is no 'tail'.
Tomcat log files *cannot* be viewed while Tomcat is running. So you have to
divert all logging output to Standard Out and then view the log file of the
process that is Tomcat. This file only outputs from the buffer at intervals.

> 4. Can't run JBoss, Apache 2, etc.

You can certainly run JBoss, since, like Tomcat, it's pure Java.  At
least the 3.2 JBoss levels run on a 1.4 JRE, not sure about 4.0 JBoss.

As above, I want to write Java, not shell scrips. Porting JBoss is just not
worth the effort.

Now that sounds serious.
