Chuck thanks..
I did multiple trials running drools RBMS directly under Tomcat 5.5 but couldn't make happen, at last I downloaded the standalone JBOSS + drools-guvnor. This works fine. But when I take the same drools-guvnor war file and place in the webapps of Tomact - Tomcat refuses to deply the application (although the directory is expended fine). I did copy 3 update jsf jar files to the Tomcat lib as directed. Log files are attached. Thanks, Isaac.

Use WinZip or the jar utility from the JDK if you want to look inside the .war

There's no error message in Tomcat that says "doesn't work";
if you really want help, be specific about the errors you're seeing.

Proofread before hitting the send button?

No, Tomcat 5.5 and 6.0 work fine on Vista.  What JRE/JDK do you have installed?
 What's in the Tomcat logs?
