You are doing what I was suggesting ;-) When I meant a fresh one, it
doesn't matter for the tests if it was built from sources or if it was a
binary ;-)

If you installed the binary and it does not work, then, it's not a
Debian bug and we'll not be able to help you, except if someone one the
list already has this kind of problem.

Maybe you should install the whole WSDP package from Sun, even if you
already have another tomcat installation :(

Good luck,
