Tomcat6 install on SLES11 failes

When trying to install Tomcat6 on a SLES11 host (for Groupwise Webacces 801HP1) you will get a error like:

error: Failed dependencies:
ecj >= 3.2.2 is needed by tomcat6-lib-6.0.18-17.1.noarch

If you look in Yast you will not find the package needed. Just go to and search for ecj by doing a Ctrl+f. Download the file and perform a install by doing a rpm -Uvh ecj-3.3-122.2.noarch.rpm

Now you can install tomcat 6
