    3737    These instructions apply only to the BASE release which this
    3838    document is a part of. The instructions here assume
    39     that <ulink url="http://tomcat.apache.org/">Apache Tomcat 8</ulink> is used
     39    that <ulink url="http://tomcat.apache.org/">Apache Tomcat 9 (or 8)</ulink> is used
    4040    on the server side. Other servlet engines may work but we only
    4141    test with Tomcat.
     
    5454        upgrading from a BASE installation that is older (3.0-3.13)
    5555        you should also read <xref linkend="appendix.update_warnings" />.

     60        We have started to test BASE with Tomcat 9 and has not found any problems
     61        so far. For new installations we recommend that Tomcat 9 is used. Official
     62        support for Tomcat 8 will be dropped in a future BASE version. For existing
     63        installations our recommendation is to start planning for an upgrade to
     64        Tomcat 9.

    102111            If the BASE application is not shut down already, it is

    615               As of BASE 3.6 we are only supporting Tomcat 8.
    616               Tomcat 7 may work, but there is no guarantee.
     624              As of BASE 3.15 we are recommending that Tomcat 9 is used for new
     625              installations. BASE still supports Tomcat 8, but this will (officially)
     626              be dropped in a future release.
