I've got 5.5.something working with Java 6u20 (before we upgraded to Tomcat 6), so I'd say that should work just fine. But why not switch to Tomcat 6 or 7?

Rob, thanks I was hoping that was the case.

Good question. We need to consider that too.

Tomcat 5.5.28 works on JDK 6. I personally have tried that recently.
