Not 100% sure on JBoss, but Tomcat can be used according to the Apache Software License agreement. Take a look at it on the Apache site. However, if you want a full J2EE server, Tomcat will not be sufficient. Use JBoss

JBoss is open source (Gnu Lesser General Public License), so yes.
Professional Open Source Licensing

JBoss can use Tomcat as its web container. You can download a pre-configured JBoss/Tomcat application server.
