Thank you for your answer.

Well, apparently, according to the author of this article, I chose the best
method (JSVC)!
But thank you very much for pointing me towards this article and this FAQ
which looks very interesting, full of interesting questions (and answers).
Indeed the iptables solution looks attracting.
I chose JSVC because I wanted Tomcat to be started at boot time and, 
if I'm not mistaken, this is root who runs the "/etc/init.d/" scripts
including the "/etc/init.d/tomcat7" script... 
but I needed Tomcat to be run as a non-root user etc. etc.

That's exactly what I did and I did it for exactly the same reasons given in
this article.
I didn't install the Tomcat Debian package.
I'm glad I did right.

Best regards.
