> I realize that Tomcat was just upgraded to 7.0.26, but there are a few fixes in Tomcat 7.0.27, specifically issue 52830 (https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=52830) which causes a big problem for people, like me, who are trying to use the Tomcat connection pool with Hibernate 4.x, which fails without this fix.
