The LAMP package and Tomcat should be able to coexist.
Without getting too technical, the only conflict that may arise would be if the two webservers try and bind to the same port.
A quick configuration of the listening port for each webserver should resolve this if it does indeed happen.
With regards to patching Apache for JSP, it is not recommended, as the reason for using Apache Tomcat is that the Tomcat servlet was and is designed to handle Java, whereas Apache HTTP server is a standalone webserver (usually used for HTML, CGI, perl, PHP, etc).
I recommend you do not patch Apache; implement Apache Tomcat, as Tomcat is specifically for JSP and it will install the webserver for SysAid too.
Remember, Tomcat is a servlet container, when called Apache Tomcat it indicates it is bundled with the Apache webserver.
Tomcat can run either in stand-alone mode or "connected" to Apache.
Tomcat is intended for JSP (based on the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies).
You can keep your LAMP and have SysAid hosted by Tomcat, providing there are no conflicting configurations.
Please bear in mind that the Sun JRE is the only JRE which is compatible with SysAid.
This might be of some interest to you:
I hope this information assists you.
