In servlet 3.0 the type in an env-entry can be any type which has a public constructor taking a single String (or character) as an argument. Tomcat only accepts a fixed list of types (see NamingContextListener from line 813). This is legal in web.xml but not accepted by tomcat: <env-entry> <env-entry-name>location</env-entry-name> <env-entry-type>java.io.File</env-entry-type> <env-entry-value>/var/lib/tomcat</env-entry-value> </env-entry>

Thanks for the report and for tracking down the point in the code that needed to be fixed. This has been fixed (and a simple test case added) in trunk and 7.0.x and will be included in 7.0.33 onwards.
