Yes.  I'd recomment checing the list archive of this list for postings
from Misha Koshelev regarding OpenMRS packaging which is also using
Tomcat.  Misha has done a really good job in adapting OpenMRS to

Asking the user should be avoided at all if possible and everything
which can be automated should be done automatically.

Kind regards
