Before your give up with Tomcat, you should try Qilan  
(  Qilan is a web development application which  
includes a fully configured version of Tomcat.  Qilan even includes  
simple apple scripts that start/stop Tomcat.  If you want to get into  
configuring Tomcat, that's fine, but you don't have to.  Tomcat is a  
great performer, fast, reliable and stable.  I agree that it's  
internals can be difficult for the user who just wants to create a  
web application, but that's were Qilan comes into play.  Qilan is a  
Mac OS X application.
