Probably to avoid having to change startup scripts, procedures, etc.,
when Tomcat is upgraded.

Do not download and install the version with Java EE - that will result
in problems you don't want to deal with; just use the plain JDK 5.0
Update 10.  It's pretty straightforward.

You could download JDK 6 instead, but that's brand new, and I wouldn't
risk it.
