I need the permissions to be set appropriately.  What is the best way to set the umask value
when running tomcat using jsvc?
That's a good question.
I don't think jsvc would take any account of the Tomcat user's .profile 
ACLs would allow you to do that however :-)
(Seriously, I believe you can set an ACL on the target directory that 
would make it so that when this particular user (Tomcat) creates a file 
there, it has by default a given set of permissions).
Otherwise, you might have to do some kind of chmod from within your 
webapp itself, after it creates the file. I don't know what Java method 
that would be.
