Tomcat cannot be built with Java 7, but it can be run with it.  Make sure you use the latest
version of Java 7, since the first couple were pretty unstable.

(The build problem is due to Sun/Oracle adding methods to some Interface classes in Java 7.
 If Tomcat were to implement those new methods, it would then be impossible to run it on Java
6.)
