That is a bit unconventional, to say the least.
But Tomcat being java, and java being happy to run wherever there is a proper JVM running,

it can work, as you just demonstrated.

Now the real question is : given that your machine is Unix, and that there are Tomcat 
versions available on the site that are specifically indicated for that platform, why did

you download and install a Windows version ?  And given that your machine is 64-bit, why 
then a 32-bit version ? just to be original ?

Tip : do not try to run any of the .exe files or .bat scripts.
(But if you do, and it also works, let us know.)
