[logback-user] Tomcat 7 and LogbackValve - final method overridden

  I later discovered there is already an issue for this, LBACCESS-17 (

  There is a fix for it included in this project (which reconfigures Logback
and SLF4J to be Tomcat's internal logger):

  He sets the LifecycleState explicitly to enable Logback-access to work
with Tomcat 7, however, that's not necessary.  All that's required in
startInternal() and stopInternal() is to make a call to the overridden
method in each case, i.e. super.startInternal() and super.stopInternal().

  I will update the above Jira ticket with this information.
