I'll admit it's not clear from the version number which versions are
beta, released, etc. You have to look at the ChangeLog:

http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-7.0-doc/changelog.html

Each release contains a release date and (optionally) a comment on the
quality of the build. The first non-beta version of Tomcat 7.0.x was
7.0.6. Tomcat 7.0.1 (distinct from 7.0.10) was actually "not released"
probably because it was broken for some reason.

When the Tomcat team rolls a release, there is a vote. If there aren't
enough "yes" votes (or any "no" votes), the release is abandoned but
the number isn't re-used.

Anyhow, there's no reason to attempt to migrate from Tomcat 6.0.x to
Tomcat 7.0.x by shooting for an "early" version of Tomcat 7.0.x: you
should go for the latest.

Also, if you mistype and say "Tomcat 7.0.1" instead of "Tomcat 7.0.10"
or "Tomcat 7.0.4" instead of "Tomcat 7.0.40" (or "Tomcat 7.0.41"),
don't get an offended when people tell you you are doing it wrong.
Just say "whoops, I meant 7.0.40" and move on.

Back to your original problem... have you modified the Tomcat 7
installation in any way -- other than dropping your WAR file/exploded
WAR into the webapps/ directory)?

Also, do you have any Tomcat-related JAR files in your webapp's
WEB-INF/lib directory?
