0.8 was tested against tomcat before it was released. It worked at  
that time.

It might be that recent changes in components used in the plugin  
pipeline have since broken the release. Whilst it would be great if  
this never happened we cannot possibly track every single project and  
system configuration. Demanding that "0.8 should be fully functional  
with current product releases" helps nobody..

Helping us solve the problem will result an increased attention from  
the developers. We are not here to provide free support for your  
company we are here because we have specific needs and since none of  
us are hitting the problem you describe you can be pretty sure our  
needs are not aligned with your own (although some people here will  
happily focus solely on your problem if you want to pay them).

If you would be so kind as to raise the JIRA issue as you suggest, add  
as much detail as you can from your own experiences and the  
discussions earlier in this thread, and also attach to it information  
about whether you see the same behaviour in 0.9-dev it would be very  

We are not saying that you should run 0.9-dev (although many people  
do), we are asking you to help narrow down whether this is an issue  
that affects 0.8 on your system configuration alone, or whether it  
still remains in 0.9. The more you help us the more we can help you,  
but please don't expect us to fix your problems for you, this is open  
source not free labour.
