Does it then
need to be run in jboss, or could it still be used in tomcat?
Theoretically, all of these API implementations are interchangeable. So
long as they meet a particular spec version (e.g., 2.5), then you may
choose to use whatever implementation you wish.
In fact, the JPackage project originally created alternatives like
servlet_2_5_api.jar for this very purpose.
Of course, I don't know specifically why Fedora has multiple
implementations sometimes (geronimo, jboss) and whether they dictate a
preference for a certain implementation, but it is not strictly
necessary to do so.
