You can use j2sdk1.3 with Tomcat as well. Add this following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb ftp://ftp.uk.linux.org/pub/linux/java/debian/ woody non-free
Or go to http://www.blackdown.org/ and find a mirror.
Then you can: apt-get install j2sdk1.3
Once you've done this, edit ``/etc/apache/mod_jk/workers.properties'' and change the workers.java_home to /usr/lib/j2sdk1.3/. Then restart Tomcat following the instructions in Section .
