Apache Tomcat is free (as in beer and as in speech) and open-source. You
can modify it yourself if necessary. You can get free support from
forums such as this one.

Tomcat does not package a lot of things that Oracle will give you
out-of-the box. I'm sure that a collection of free and open-source
products such as Tomcat+OpenJMS+JBoss(or similar)+other things will give
you a similar product offering. Oracle offers this all at once with a
nice bow around it (and price tag attached). Oracle support is probably
not free.
