I've installed Tomcat 9 by snap install, it is working fine. But now I'm starting a course that begins installing Tomcat 8 and recommends to install it by apt-get, not snap. I want to do that to match version and kind of install with the course. My question is, can I install Tomcat 8 by apt-get without conflict with Tomcat 9 snap install existing and use one or the other when I prefer?

You can do that without any problems. Snaps come with all needed dependencies included in the snap-package and do not interfere with deb-packages managed by apt.

The icons of the applications might look same, so in the first moment after installation you'll have to find out, which icon starts which application.
