You only need jsvc, if you want to have tomcat listen directly to any
port below 1024 - on unix at least.

In that case jsvc will start as root and bind to the port. After that it
will drop privileges and let tomcat continue.

You don't need jsvc if you are willing to listen to a port higher than
1024, or put another server in front of tomcat - like apache httpd.
