Sorry you’re having trouble. Plesk provides a step by step guide on setting up tomcat and getting it working here that should make the process easier and should not require much manual configuration (if any) to get it up and running. In general, when running a control panel like cPanel/WHM or Plesk I strongly recommend to never install anything directly in the OS and to work exclusively through the control panel unless the control panel’s developers and documentation specifically recommends otherwise.
