You don't need Tomcat. Any application server will do, including Jetty. There is not much
difference, except the case where you already use Tomcat and would like to avoid having another

"-d" argument should point to DB configuration file and only applies when local database is
used, but here the command-line tool will connect to the Xindice server over the network,
so -d //<DBSERVER>:4080 will be ignored.

A non-standard port/host name for command-line tool can be set by specifying "-c" argument
as full Xindice DB URL, such as:
bin/xindice lc -c xmldb:xindice://localhost:8888/db

Unfortunately, I cannot think of any workaround for that.
