    Seam servlet on Tomcat 7 problem.

      Hello all,
      I am trying to use seam-servlet module on tomcat 7.0.14, but with java ee 5 api.
      I've added stuff to my web.xml as sepcified in the documentation so that it looks like this:



      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <web-app xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

           </resource-env-ref>
      </web-app>


      But server fails to start because of the



      SEVERE: Exception starting filter Catch Exception Filter
      java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.jboss.seam.servlet.CatchExceptionFilter



      So i have to have seam-catch on my class path in order to use seam-servlet???
      is this the same 'over-eager' class path scanner problem, and is there any solution to this without addind seam catch? Thank you.
