Gotcha. Can you run in JSSE FIPS mode until Tomcat supports the

Heh... you are under the mistaken impression that I'm a great JNI
master. Seriously, though, it ought to be pretty simple: add a flag for
FIPS mode, then make sure the SSLContext knows about it.

improvement for that. Only using APR FIPS mode will require such
changes. Please confirm that via comment in bugzilla.
