Add the EPEL repository or the Atomic repository. See http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories

Thank you for your reply. I am able to update my PostgreSQL but not by that method which was mentioned in http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories link. Ya but I have learn lots of new things from that link. So really thanks for it. I have updated PostgreSQL by http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/YUM_Installation link.
But I am still not able to update my tomcat from 6 to 7. Please guide for this.

Well from reading your post and doing a little searching it looks like tomcat7 has not yet been added to the repositories as its still in Beta. There are a few rpms you can find to try and install it but I would advise against it. If you really need to upgrade to tomcat7 your best option at this point will be to compile from source. You will download the tarball from tomcat7.com and follow these steps http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-7.0-...ml#Unix_daemon.

Nope. Not until it gets added by a package maintainer which usually doesn't occur until an application has moved out of the beta stages. Tomcat7 is still currently in beta.
