I am working on DROOLS 6.0.1 application. I have my rule files (*.drl) packaged inside a separate project which is included as a jar file as a maven dependency. When I deploy my project, KIEModule is not able to find the rules files (which are packaged inside the jar above). I am not getting an error though but rules are not getting fired.
If I manually place the rules files under classpath say WEB-INF/rules/*.drl they are detected and rules are executed.
I was under impression that KIEmodules are auto discovered from anywhere in classpath.
Any pointers are appreciated. This is general question hence I have not included the comprehensive code files. Everything start working once I place the *.drl files in the classpath (take them outside of jar).
On Further invstigation by looking into the code, I found that
addFiles(assets, kBaseModel, kModule);
Call from "AbstractKieModule" fails and its not able to find the rules packaged inside the JAR file placed under WEB-INF\lib folder. I get this warning message on the console
