    Running Coldfusion 10 on Tomcat 7 (J2EE installation)

    guyon68

      I've successfully installed Tomcat 7 on a Macintosh running 10.7.5.  The ColdFusion WAR file deployed successfully, but when I try to start the service, I get a raft of errors in the Catalina.out log file:

      I got the same errors when I tried the standalone installer.  Apparently the version of Commons-Logging or Log4J that Coldfusion 10 is expecting isn't the one it's finding?  Does anyone know what this problem is and how to fix it?
