[Debian-med-packaging] Bug#609038: ITP: biomaj -- a biological databank update and processing tool

I have a question regarding Policy for web applications.

Biomj includes a webapp running in a servlet container like Tomcat. For 
the moment, Biomaj embeds Tomcat to run the webapp.

For debian package we could rely of course on Tomcat package but I 
wonder what is Policy/usage for webapps usually.

Should we:
- keep tomcat embedded for ready-to-run application (with config)
- put tomcat as dependency and put the war file in tomcat webapps
- put tomcat as dependency and ask the user to copy manually the war 
file in tomcat

Thanks for recommendations
