Is there a fully working tomcat7 cookbook for CentOS 6?

I realize that various folks have posted individual fixes to individual problems using the old ‘tomcat’ cookbook for tomcat7. But it’s not working well for me in current testing. Setting the ‘base_version’ to ‘’ allows the cookbook to install the "tomcat-7.0.33’ packages from EPEL, but the resulting configuration fails to start Tomcat.

Does anyone have a working cookbook with RPM based tomcat7 instalation on CentOs 6 or the other RHEL variants?
