I am definitely not a Linux fan at all.   This is my first attempt to use Tomcat, so I really
can't answer that question.  What I can say about it is that it installed from ports very
cleanly, using the openjdk6 port, and was up and running in short order with minimal fuss.

The fuss is a result of the web application that I'm trying to run on the platform.  As an
earlier poster mentioned, the jasper-runtime has been out since before 6.x.  So, I installed
the last 5.x version and that indeed solved that issue, and created a new one too.

I am next going to try to load the project and see if I can do anything to build it to more
modern libraries.
