First off, I haven't tried the exact thing you suggested (i.e. to
install a fresh Tomcat5 in ${HOME}/local/tomcat5). What I did try
was to install the "native" Tomcat from tomcat.apache.org locally,
I mean, in my private ~/Bin. It didn't work either, and I figured
that's pretty much what you wanted to know. Please do tell me if I
am assuming wrongly.

Second thing, though, is that my teacher for that course told me I
will indeed need the Tomcat5 container Sun offers, which is the one
the WSDP installer suggested in the first place. According to him
(but he's a manager in real life, so I'm not 100% sure :p), no "default"
Tomcat5 installation would suffice, and it *has* to be one of the
containers suggested by the Java WSDP installation routine.


PS: From the mail address mentioned at Sun's WSDP site, I haven't
received any reply whatsoever, which is too bad, because they are
probably the only people who can be dead sure...
