[GRADLE-2398] Gradle and tomcat7 cannot co-exist on Debian & Ubuntu due to bad package dependencies Created: 21/Jul/12 Updated: 10/Feb/17 Resolved: 10/Feb/17
Having to choose between running gradle and installing tomcat7
Here's a copy of the bug posted for Ubuntu systems;
gradle depends on libtomcat6-java. tomcat7 depends on tomcat7-common, which depends on libtomcat7-java, which conflicts with libtomcat6-java; thus you cannot install both gradle and tomcat7.
Perhaps there should be a libtomcat-java meta-package (provided by libtomcat6-java | libtomcat7-java) that gradle depends on, or Gradle's Tomcat plugin should be split out to a separate package. Or maybe libtomcat6-java and libtomcat6-java do not really need to conflict.

The latest Eclipse cannot co-exist with gradle on
Again, this is due to the same Gradle packaging bug.
