Update Tomcat to 7/8

Reported by: nuest Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: normal Milestone: OSGeoLive9.0
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: Tomcat, Java

Description

An update to Tomcat 7 would allow to install webapps using Servlet Spec 3.x (for details see http://tomcat.apache.org/whichversion.html).

Depending on the projects that actually use the pre-installed Tomcat, one could even jump to Tomcat 8 which requieres Java 7 or later.

Background: We're considering changing dependencies for the 52°North WPS that would result in requiring Tomcat 7 instead of 6. Alternatively we could ship the WPS with it's own servlet container, but that's just taking away disc space from more interesting stuff.
