We are happily using Ubuntu provided OpenJDK because OracleJDK had
some crash bugs.
Even that bugs might have been fixed, we appreciate if Ubuntu
continues to provide an
alternative, well-supported OpenJDK based JVM implementation.
As to Tomcat, having it in main is not important for us for several reasons:
1. Its easier to use official archive.
2. There are vital alternatives including Jetty.
