Comment 3 for bug 1012794

Hi John

Thanks for taking the time to report this bug in Ubuntu.

Unfortunately we can't upgrade the version of tomcat7 in 12.04 to the latest version; however we can apply updates via the Stable Release Update process for Important bugs such as the one you have hit.

As such I am going to re-title this bug report - we can cherry pick the required changes from the upstream VCS to resolve this issue.
