Patch file to replace new Booleans with primitive version

While reviewing the source code, I noticed that java\org\apache\catalina\core\StandardContext.java code is creating Boolean objects unnecessarily.  For example:

                               new Boolean(oldAntiJARLocking),
                               new Boolean(this.antiJARLocking));

is instantiating Boolean objects when there is already a version of firePropertyChange that accepts boolean primitives.  So, the above can be rewritten to avoid instantiating new objects like:


This pattern was repeated for numerous properties.

I took the liberty of creating a patch.
