We're running some web apps on CentOS 6 on Tomcat 6 shipped by the

As time goes by we'd like to move on to CentOS 8 and Tomcat 9 or whatever
is appropriate.

My question is, what do others use now that Tomcat is not shipped anymore
with CentOS?

Do you run some JBoss/WildFly instead or still running Tomcat?

And, how do you install/manage those installations. Do you have RPM
packaged versions or fiddle with tarballs?

Since this is a quite standard setup for web apps I'm really wondering how
everybody is doing it these days?
