RE: JSP - How to install?
Thanks for the reply. I just pulled down the dummy java package but I am
still getting a dependency for Java when I try to pull down tomcat. Any

I assumed you installed your jdk by hand (which is what I did also).
apt only knows about software that is installed by the packaging
system, so it is unaware of the jdk you have installed.
Fortunately, there is a dummy java package for just such such an occasion:
apt-get install java-virtual-machine-dummy java-common
