I've added you to the contributors group. Don't break anything ;)

Yikes. You really need to encourage them to move up. Are you
responsible for security of the servers? If so, you should be ...
unsettled by the use of Tomcat 5.

I personally think it's entirely reasonable to support Java 6 but you
should encourage your customers to test with Java 7 and upgrade ASAP.
Again, there are potentially un-patched security vulnerabilities in
there that will never be fixed.

Don't feel like you have to defend yourself: we ran for several years
in production with a 64MiB heap and did just fine. On the other hand,
you might want to consider offering bigger heaps than 2GiB. These days
with 64-bit JVMs, people are starting to expect insanely-large heaps
in certain cases.

You might want to point-out that Tomcat 8 hasn't been released and is
currently in ALPHA status.
