JSP in Tomcat

If you want to support JSP within Tomcat, uncomment the org.apache.tomcat.embed:tomcat-embed-jasper dependency (it is commented out by default). Otherwise, it will load a lighter set of resources.

Glassfish 3.1

There is a conflict between the classes in embedded Glassfish and embedded Tomcat. As a result, the pom.xml needs to be modified to include/exclude the dependencies for one or the other. Currently, this defaults to Tomcat.

NOTE: there seems to be an issue with the Glassfish configuration as it isn't correctly loading anymore.
