An open source rule engine, DMN engine and complex event processing (CEP) engine for Java™ and the JVM Platform.

Drools is a business rule management system with a forward-chaining and backward-chaining inference based rules engine, allowing fast and reliable evaluation of business rules and complex event processing. A rule engine is also a fundamental building block to create an expert system which, in artificial intelligence, is a computer system that emulates the decision-making ability of a human expert.

Test execution tip

Some test are meant to be executed on machine with en_US locale. A specific profile is provided to execute them on machines with different locale, namely test-en. There are two ways to activate such profile during maven build:

  1. -Ptest-en (profile-id based)
  2. -DTestEn (property based)

The following two commands will execute tests on machine with locale different than en_US:

  1. mvn clean verify -Ptest-en
  2. mvn clean verify -DTestEn
