Would I get help if I get an error with third-party software?

Apache Tomcat, a free open-source third-party web application server, is not an SAP product.
SAP recommends you contact a qualified third-party vendor or consultant for problems such as performance tuning, out of memory issues, or not being able to start or stop Apache Tomcat.
