Let me broaden the scope: it could be any Linux OS. Better if with Hibernate installed. –  Anonymous Aug 26 '09 at 10:19

Personally? The best one is one installed and configured yourself and archived. That way it's configured for your needs and your use on your network. I don't know of a specific turnkey solution that is "best", and anything you keep having to download as an update will still require you to reconfigure it each time for your own use.

Just install CentOS, install Java, and then Tomcat. Its really not that hard and takes only a few hours. If you want to do templating and have vCenter, just clone a template machine each time you need a new instance.
