You need to be more specific before what you say here has any weight.
"some Java systems"? Do you even know what these are, or whether they
even support Java well enough to deal with Tomcat or ant or any other
serious, recent java application?
"I have heard that blah is a particular irritation", without any
particular reasons, other than "it's irritating"? Is it irritating
because it doesn't work, or because it's in contrib, or because of how
the dependencies are set up, or what?
Charging into battle without adequate armor isn't a good idea. :)

(1) You can't get anything without working for it.
(2) The most you can accomplish by working is to break even.
(3) You can only break even at absolute zero.
