there should be no problem running a recent Tomcat 7 with an unchanged 
Oracle HotSpot Java 6, 7 or 8 on Solaris 10. I regularly do this.

Maybe you unpacked a downloaded tarball using Solaris tar? Solaris tar 
has a very specific way of handling long path names and is not 
compatible with gnu tar. Most tarballs noadays are packed using gnu tar 
and should be unpacked with gnu tar as well. Otherwise files can be 
missing or created with a wrong file name.

gnu tar for Solaris should be installed under /usr/sfw/bin/gtar.
