Unfortunately, you have to define what end to end you are looking for, Apache includes documentation and guides. please take the time to look at the main link David provided.

rpm is more of an application install package such as MSI, or an EXE that deploys an application.
rpm -i file.rpm
will install the package from file.rpm
rpm -ql file.rpm
will list the contents of the rpm package and where each file ends up.....
it includes dependency checks that will alert you that the package can not be installed because a required dependency or it will error out saying an existing package is known to be conflicting ..

depending on which linux distribution ubuntu/debian, redhat/centos, linuxmint, etc.
each have their own respective package manageder apt-get/aptitude/dpkg  yum/rpm etc.


in the above, download the bin

expand it in a tomcat subdirectory..
mkdir newdir
cd newdir
gzip -cd < /path/to/where/you/downloaded/common-*bin.tar.gz | tar -xf -


....
what you are looking to download is more equivalent to a site/documents versus applications.. web application...
