Hi Rick

I am a small time java developer. I am very excited to learn about Winstone.This is my first day with it.  What I need is run a JSF 1.2 (specifically) on Winstone server. I could successfully configure Winstone to run the JSF. I pointed my Java_home to a JDK 6 implementation. So far so good.

Next step I took was download the JSF's GuessNumber war and try to run it. This is where I am stuck. I get this following exception :

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Application was not properly initialized at sta

        at winstone.Launcher.<init>(Launcher.java:196)
        at winstone.Launcher.main(Launcher.java:391)

For ant I used : apache-ant-1.8.4. I was getting ant luncher exception . So I did the easiest thing I can do. Just copied all the jars from the ant/lib directory :-). 

I twice mailed you with attachment of the working directory with lib and webapps in the first mail and second with just the zip file of the webapps directory. But the mails bounced . As such, 

MY QUESTION is how to deploy the JSF-guessnumber war on winstone.

Please help. An early reply will be highly appreciated.
