For tomcat on alpha either try SableVM, or CacaoJVM, or gij. As a
Kaffe dev, I know that Kaffe is currently very fragile on alpha :( If
you run into bugs with SableVM or gij, please file bugs in the BTS. I'd
suggest trying out cacao, as the cacao devs are actively hacking on a
nice, fast jit for alpha, afaict.
If you need help setting up cacao on an alpha, please join the IRC
channel #cacao on irc.freenode.net, twisti, one of the Cacao developers,
has a tomcat instance running on an alpha under cacao.
 And they could use users, being a really nice & helpful bunch. :)
 If you are interested in helping out with making kaffe run nice on
alpha hop on the kaffe mailing list, firstname.lastname@example.org.
