    Default Installing Tomcat 8 from tar.gz

    Having Apache Tomcat installed through a OpenSUSE repository has its advantages
    Configuration under /etc/tomcat
    Webapp under /srv/tomcat
    Log files under /var/log/tomcat
    And best of all ready to run as a service

    However I would like to use Apache Tomcat 8, but cannot find any OpenSUSE repository for it.
    So I'm left with these options.
    1) Unpack apache-tomcat-8.0.5.tar.gz under /usr/tomcat or /usr/share/tomcat and start it with catalina.sh manually or create startup script /etc/init.d/tomcatd
    2) Unpack apache-tomcat-8.0.5.tar.gz to temporary location. Copy all files to existing tomcat 7 directories. But this on could be messy with later Tomcat 7 removal.
    3) Save service files from Tomcat 7. Remove Tomcat 7 installation. Unpack Tomcat 8, modify service file to start $TOMCAT_HOME/bin/catalina.sh

    Anyone with some good suggestions?

    Maybe submit a "Feature Request" at http://bugzilla.novell.com asking someone to build Tomcat 8 packages?
