Yes it is java permission issue (it is not related to unix file

Somehow your tomcat is starting with java security manager enabled.  
Which means all applications are running in the sandbox and you have  
to explicitly specify which application is allowed to do what - which  
is done in conf/catalina.policy file. You could edit this file to put  
in there all the permissions necessary to run xindice, or - much  
easier - you can turn off security manager.

Check your tomcat start script and look for "-Djava.security.manager"  
parameter or "-security" parameter or something like that. If you  
remove this parameter, tomcat (and xindice) should start and work
