Package: tomcat5.5
Version: 5.5.20-2
Followup-For: Bug #406614

The file verifyInstall.properties [1] of JST plugin expects the
following directory structure under the tomcat home directory:

The standard tomcat 5.5 installation provides this webapps folder.
Maybe the debian package for tomcat5.5 should include this symlink:
/usr/share/tomcat5.5/webapps -> /var/lib/tomcat5.5/webapps/
