tomcat pack provides version 7.x of the Apache Tomcat web application server
and is a very popular pack for OneOps users running Java-powered web applications. With the
recent release we are bringing you an important update to
The pack is updated to Tomcat version 7.0.75 as the new default version from 7.0.70. The upgrade brings numerous fixes including the important mitigation of the security issue CVE-2016-8745 (original announcement). Check out the changelog for specific details about other changes. You can find the new version in the build version drop down.
In addition, the OneOps component changes are now propagated between
tomcat-daemon. This means
that any updates to one of these components triggers events in the others. E.g. an upgrade of the
tomcat component to
the new version from this release triggers the
artifact, e.a.your web application deployed to Tomcat, to be re-deployed
to the new application server. And the combination of daemon and server and application is restarted..
We recommend to all users of the
tomcat pack to upgrade their usage to the latest version and roll out the upgrade to
all affected assemblies and their compute nodes.
