tomcat7 is missing a link to eclipse-ecj (a prerequisite package) in the directory /usr/share/tomcat7/lib. Without this link it is not possible to compile JSP. This problem occurred to me within eclipse and has also been reported in netbeans,

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

This can be fixed adding a link to the eclipse-ecj install

ln -s /usr/share/java/eclipse-ecj-3.7.1.jar /usr/share/tomcat7/lib/eclipse-ecj.jar

which should probably be included in the default install.

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

I am also getting this problem. I don't understand why they would remove that file intentionally. It's a bad sign when the generic package is better configured than the one available in the repos. It means either the package maintainer is incompetent or malicious.

You're wrong: I'm both.
