Can anyone recommend pretty good CVS server software that is free? I would prefer something java based that I can run off of Tomcat, but anything that I can run on the same box as my web server would be acceptable.

Never heard of a java cvs server implementation.
CVS is usually run under Unix, but there is a NT version that works for some purposes. Most people seem to prefer the Unix version for production development, and maybe CVSNT where they don't have Unix or Linux, like home.

CVS itself is written in C, and actually, it doesn't run UNDER a web server, but is in fact a server itself, often accessed at tcp/ip port 2401 (depending on how you login to it). There's 2 java CVS client programs, but if anyone's written a CVS-style server in Java, I don't know about it (you could always check
There's a cgi application called cvsweb that allows users to browse the contents of a CVS archive via a web server. The one I'm running's written in Perl.
