Take a look at the "Advanced" section of RUNNING.txt in any Tomcat
distribution's root. It will explain how you can use CATALINA_BASE and
CATALINA_HOME environment variables to have a single deployment
directory that doesn't (usually) have to change between point-releases
(e.g. 7.0.50 -> 7.0.51). It also allows you to install multiple Tomcat
versions side-by-side and choose which one to use at launch.

This will allow you to install a new version of Tomcat, launch with
it, and then easily roll-back to the prior version if you decide that
the upgrade is not working for you for some reason.

Hope that helps,
