JRun is a fully compliant J2EE application server while Tomcat is just a JSP/Servlet container.
It's obvious which one is better but maybe Tomcat will better suit your needs(i.e. practice with JSPs and Servlets).

I'd modify the 'just' to read "fully compliant J2EE servlet container"

Saying that tomcat is 'just' a servlet runner is like saying Unix is 'just' an operating system.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
