Though not yet in main, Stefan Gybas packaged Tomcat 3.2b6 recently
for Debian. I've given it some simple tests, and it seems to work. He
decided to make /usr/share/java/webapps the place to dump war
files. The war files are then unpacked into /var/lib/tomcat/webapps
during the init.d startup for tomcat. This seems like a very
reasonable scheme and would even allow different j2ee compliant
servlet/jsp to share the same webapp repository.
