i suppose you're not making much sense to most of us

you are not very specific, so it is hard to help you out here. both ways
you describe should be possible, so it depends on your situation, you
requirements, the amount of time you need and can put into the effort

great! what are your questions?

as somebody in the original thread suggested: he is running glassfish and
postgres. i suppose, if java runs then tomcat shouldn't be a problem.
have you tried?
as for putting the stuff on to a CD: gentoo has great tools to help you
with that. but its really not hardened related - go take a peak at the
gentoo-server list. you may want to look at catalyst to build an hardened
webapp image that you can deploy on your servers directly. quickstart by
agaffney is of great help also...
hope that helps. if not, try to be more specific in your questions -
simply restating them is unlikely to make you more popular
