This is not a Tomcat error. It's improperly-coded JSF EL. It can be expected to fail regardless of what J2EE server hosts it.

EL is not supposed to be a "programming language" to begin with, so writing EL as if it was is a bad practice even when done in valid ways. And, as I often point out, putting logic in View definitions is a violation of the MVC Separation of Concerns concept in any event.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
