It used to be Jakarta Tomcat, but it's been Apache Tomcat for a long time now.

Jakarta was part of the Apache project, so technically, either term is correct. However in the last year or 2, a lot of Apache's sub-projects have been promoted to first-level status, including Tomcat, and the URLs and package names now generally reflect that. But the old URLs mostly still work.
