Apache Tomcat / Tomcat based apps

A few weeks back I posted a message asking for some direction on 
contributing to Cygwin by maintaining Apache Tomcat and a few other 
tomcat based applications. A few people responded and suggested that I 
look at gcj as the possible compiler to use as it is already in Cygwin.

I have spent the last few weeks trying to get this to work with no 
success. I would like to find out if it is possible to create a 
dependency in a package on the sun java sdk. For example the default 
install of Java 1.5 from Sun uses a home directory of:   
"/cygdrive/c/Program\ Files/Java/jdk1.5.0_06" , so keying on the 
presence of that directory is a good bet Java is installed with the 
correct version.

Suggestions? Comments?
