    Tomcat support has had a great run with cPanel & WHM. Unfortunately there are times in life when you know it's time to say goodbye, and gracefully remove yourself from the spotlight to allow others to get the chance to shine.

    As you may know, cPanel will provide it's first release of CentOS 7 support starting with cPanel & WHM version 11.50. Unfortunately we will not be adding support for Tomcat in CentOS 7 due to various reasons.

    The Tomcat version that cPanel supports is out of date, and not supported on CentOS 7. Updating Tomcat to a newer version requires numerous dependency changes, that cannot be fulfilled by the OS directly. As Tomcat is only used by less than .1% of our user base, we feel that the amount of effort it would take to get Tomcat running on CentOS 7 is better spent on EasyApache 4 and future expansion.

    A new EasyApache release will be sent out soon that will ensure that Tomcat will no longer be available in the EasyApache interfaces, nor via the command line tools on CentOS 7 and higher.

    While it's possible that Tomcat support will come back eventually, at this time we're focusing on EasyApache 4 and making the web stack expandable and customizable.
