Update Tomcat to 7/8
|Reported by:||nuest||Owned by:|
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.
