TomcatEmbeddedServletContainerFactory is missing in Spring Boot 2

I have Spring Boot application version 1.5.x, which uses org.springframework.boot.context.embedded.tomcat.TomcatEmbeddedServletContainerFactory, I’m trying to migrate it to Spring Boot 2, but the app does not compile, although a have a dependency to org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-tomcat. The compiler issues the error below:

error: package org.springframework.boot.context.embedded.tomcat
