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.

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.
