I believe that you are asking the wrong question.

As per this page :

"Apache Tomcat™ is an open source software implementation of the Java Servlet and 
JavaServer Pages technologies."

In other words, Tomcat is not an implementation of any specific Java version.
If, to fulfill its target of implementing some specific version of the Java Servlet and 
JavaServer Pages technologies, it was necessary for running Tomcat code to use a certain 
minimum version of the Java JVM, then so be it, and the page above would mention that (and

it does).
But that does not mean that every feature available in such a version of the Java JVM 
/must/ necessarily be used by Tomcat.
