Tomcat problems with Java 8

If you're doing any of our courses that use Tomcat, be aware that the latest update to Java 8 (1.8.0_91) seems to have broken JSP compilations for all versions of Tomcat up to and including 8. We're not sure why this is happening, but as a quick fix either use Java 1.8.0_77 or earlier, OR use Tomcat 9 which is confirmed to fully support Java 8.
(Note that Tomcat 9 is still in Alpha, so doing this carries some risk - the safest choice is to use an earlier Java).
