Running Drools on Tomcat?

I plan using Drools on Tomcat.
My concern is that one of the company divisions switched to JBoss explaining that Drools has JBoss dependencies.
Is it correct?

I haven't looked in a while, but I don't think Drools even requires a webapp to run in. I think it's supposed to be usable in standalone java apps, too. So I doubt it's going to have a problem with Tomcat.

On the other hand, Drools comes embedded in the JBoss advanced server products (as does Tomcat), and the administrative support you get from such things might make it worth the extra heft of running full-on JBoss.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
I agree. Here's the link:
