Actually nowadays it is easy to use java and tomcat on freebsd.

First one has to install a JDK. I myself prefer diablo-jdk. Go to
/usr/ports/java/diablo-jdk15, type

make install

and follow the instructions. Due to java licenses you have to manually
fetch some files from internet and put them in /usr/ports/distfiles.

If you are required to use sun jdk, you can install it from
java/jdk15. Note that it will need an existing jdk to bootstrap. By
default it uses linux-sun-jdk and I had problems with it in the past.
In this case I used diablo-jdk and sun jdk15 installed correctly. From
my experinece, however, I can tell that tomcat runs fine with

Next go to /usr/ports/www/tomcat55/ and install it and you have java and tomcat.
