-    Note:
-      Apache Tomcat builds a private copy of the Apache Commons DBCP
-      library, which is used to provide support for database connection
-      pooling. As far as java.sql interfaces differ in different Java
-      versions, the library can be successfully compiled only with the
-      specified version of JDK.

-      See Apache Commons DBCP project web site for more details,

+      As documented elsewhere, one of components in Apache Tomcat includes
+      a private copy of the Apache Commons DBCP library. The source code
+      for this library is downloaded, processed by the build script
+      (renaming the packages) and compiled.
+
+      Due to changes in JDBC interfaces implemented by the library between
+      versions of Java SE specification, the library has to target specific
+      version of Java and can be compiled only with the JDK version
+      implementing this version of specification.

+      See Apache Commons DBCP project web site for more details on

       If you really want to use a later version of JDK to build Tomcat,
-      several workarounds are possible. One of them is to skip building the
-      library. Note though that you might not be able to create a "release"
-      without it.

  3. Install the JDK according to the instructions included with the release.
