 From the situation that you describe above, let me give you a personal and practical 
answer and recommendation : get your boss to talk to the boss of these IT guys, and give 
you a practical access level to that system, or else you will not be able to solve these 
issues in any practical time.
People here are also not going to be able to help you in any practical time, because by 
not having access to the Tomcat directories, you will not be able to provide answers to 
the questions being asked.
