Yes indeed:
C:\> java -version
java version "1.5.0_18"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_18-b02)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.5.0_18-b02, mixed mode)

For the system we're installing, it's only been vetted on 1.5 unfortunately.

No catalina.out at all, and stderr and stdout are empty. Only the
jakarta logs from when we tried running it as a service had any info,
as previously reported.
