Do yourself a favour and do NOT use Tomcat and Java from your linux  
distribution.

Download Tomcat from Apache.org
Download Java from
   http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp
Either the JDK, or JRE

Install them both in /usr/local
ln -s /usr/local/java-whatever-their-version /usr/local/java

change your startup script to

   JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/java
   export JAVA_HOME
   PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
   export PATH


Cheers

Andrew
