     Nevermind. I manually installed your previous test packages under
current xenial and those changes don't solve the breakage in running the
MetaboAnalyst war under tomcat8 on ubuntu. As I mentioned before, when
using glassfish there is no problems running MetaboAnalyst but under
tomca8, one gets...

HTTP Status 404 -
type Status report
description The requested resource is not available.
Apache Tomcat/8.0.32 (Ubuntu)

for http://localhost:8080/MetaboAnalyst/faces/ModuleView.xhtml.

I know that tomcat 8.0.32 should be able to run this war as we do it in the
fink project on MacOS against the Oracle JDK 1.8.
ps I have attached the /var/lib/tomcat8/logs directory from my installation
which contains the files created after...

installing authbind, libcommons-collections3-java, libcommons-dbcp-java,
libcommons-pool-java, libecj-java, libjakarta-taglibs-standard-java, libjax
p1.3-java, libjstl1.1-java, libtomcat8-java, libxalan2-java,
libxerces2-java, libxml-commons-external-java,  libxml-commons-resolver1.1-j
ava,  tomcat8, tomcat8-admin, tomcat8-common, tomcat8-docs,
tomcat8-examples, and tomcat8-user using your test tomcat packages and then

$ sudo -u tomcat8 R

into the browser which produces the error message I cited earlier.

Note that this works fine under glassfish with the caveat that glassfish4
as well as R and the launched Rserve are all run as the current user.
However, steps that I am using for running under tomcat8 as its user work
fine on MacOS so this failure on ubuntu is all very confusing.

Also note that Rutter's R and cran's have to be used since current
Bioconductor requires R 3.4.
