For tomcat on alpha either try SableVM, or CacaoJVM[1], or gij. As a
Kaffe dev, I know that Kaffe is currently very fragile on alpha[3] :( 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.[2]

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.

alpha hop on the kaffe mailing list, kaffe@kaffe.org.
