You can run Tomcat5 with JDK 6. Although there's been talk about a Tomcat that runs under just a JRE, as far as I know, they all still require the full JDK.

This isn't Microsoft where version dependency breakage is an ordinary part of life. Java was expressly designed to support backwards compatibility.

It's not a bad idea to move to Tomcat6, though. There's relatively little trauma in moving from TC5.5 to TC6.
