These guys sell one

These guys give it away

Both JRE and Tomcat have windows EXE packages...
Any installer should allow you to unpack and run each one... so user will 
see JRE setup
and then Tomcat the service set up....

I have another (untested) but possible very radical way.
On this site http://coolese.100free.com/  have a look at IGNITION.
It installs Java exec jars by letting the user click on a URL.in their 
browser.
On windows one can use a script in the page to auto install JRE... it has 
that script.

Then there is a port of tomcat on the same site to a nornal jar 
configuration.
Its radical, but in theory the user can click on a link in their browser, 
and Tomcat will start
running... not recommended but fun.

Good Luck
