IANAL, but Java's licensing should not affect Tomcat at all, unless
Oracle decides that writing software using Java is somehow no longer
permissible. The existence of OpenJDK might make hat difficult for
Oracle to do.

Tomcat is licensed under the AL2 license [1] which allows for broad
use of the product (Tomcat) in both source and binary forms for both
private and commercial use.

Did you have any specific concerns about Oracle's licensing model?
(Well, other than the fact that Oracle is the one licensing the
software, of course!)
