In 99% of the cases, it helps if you provide right away the full version of Tomcat, of the

JVM you are using, and on which platform this is running.
If anything, it saves time for the persons who are trying to help you.
It may also save /you/ a lot of time if it reminds someone that this is a know bug in the

version 7.0.xx that you are using, and is corrected in version 7.0.yy; or if some 
attribute should be set because your are under platform xyz etc..
