Catalina Error Log

Description of problem:
Developers in current environment want to use features present in later versions of tomcat 7. For example, org.apache.catalina.startup.VersionLoggerListener. This is not present in 7.0.54, nor can I can find a similar/related function.

Our developers would like this feature, but it's not available. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 7.0.54-2

How reproducible:
All the time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install tomcat
2. Modify /etc/tomcat/server.xml to include: <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.startup.VersionLoggerListener" />
3. Start tomcat

Actual results:
 tomcat.service - Apache Tomcat Web Application Container
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/tomcat.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Thu 2015-12-03 01:42:48 GMT; 34min ago
(See attached log)

Expected results:
Successful startup and use of classes.

Additional info:

There is another bug report here: 1154978 -- One of the latest comments notes that there is an attempt to get Tomcat 7.0.65 to EPEL for EL 6. This is fine, however, but it does not align with what's available in EL7 at this present time. 

I am also up for any other suggestions to help my customers work around this issue.
