I can't really see how (or why) you'd want the server to run *under* 
JRUN/Tomcat/any-other-servlet-container, unless you are aiming at an 
HTTP-binding server. The server should have its own process; if you want 
web-administration, how about simply adding a web-admin interface to any 
exiting server (be it Java-based or not)? You can add specific 
Jabber-extensions to control the server, or use any other method (like 
XML-RPC -- this is what they do in OpenGroupware.org for example to 
control things remotly).
