Description Jiri Locker 2013-08-23 07:44:12 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a function defined according to documentation [1] and working in Guvnor 5.x. After migrating to Workbench, the function is listed in "Others" section and opens in default editor. Validation is not available. When the function is used in DRL rule I get compiler error upon validation:

Unable to Analyse Expression System.out.println(hello("Jiri"));: [Error: unable to resolve method using strict-mode: org.drools.core.spi.KnowledgeHelper.hello(java.lang.String)] [Near : {... System.out.println(hello("Jiri")); ....}] ^ [Line: 5, Column: 0]

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
- Missing UI support (Function Editor with validation).
- Functions not recognized in rules.

Expected results:
not( Actual results )

Functions are created as plain DRL in 6.0.x (there is no explicit "New Function"). Functions should appear under the "DRL" section in Project Explorer. I checked operation of creating a new function and rule with 6.0.x (in the mortgages project):-

function String hello(String name) {
    return "Hello "+name+"!";

rule "using a static function"
    eval( true )
    System.out.println( hello( "Bob" ) );

Both Validated OK (after a fix I've made; see below) and the Project built OK.

I'll assign this to Jervis to check data-migration; but since (AFAIK) data migration is not supported as part of the Productization think this BZ is no longer a blocker.
Comment 4 manstis 2013-08-30 07:34:48 EDT

Could you please check functions in 5.x are migrated as .drl in 6.0.x (I had a quick look at the code and it appears to do so; but Jiri is reported a migrated function appears under "Other" and not "DRL" in Project Explorer).


Can you try migrating your test project again (in case there have been other fixes that ensure functions are migrated as DRL).

Verified in BRMS 6 ER7.

I've used Michael's steps from comment #2. Rule validation didn't produce any error nor the project deployment operation. Function are correctly listed in 'DRL' section as is should be.
Comment 11 Jiri Svitak 2014-01-14 09:21:02 EST
I've tried also to use Guided rule editor and the problem persists:

Unable to Analyse Expression System.out.println( hello( "Bob" ) );: [Error: unable to resolve method using strict-mode: org.drools.core.spi.KnowledgeHelper.hello(java.lang.String)] [Near : {... System.out.println( hello( "Bob" ) ); ....}] ^ [Line: 3, Column: 0]

(I've used free form drl.)

Comment 17 Neus Miras 2014-01-23 09:03:02 EST
The package reference is now added to the header of the function. It is done in this commit:


After this change the function passes the DRL validation but not the Guided editor rule validation. I've tried a DRL with the same code and it works right. 

I've tried to create a new function and I've got the same error message using that from the guided rule editor. It seems to be related to the strict-validation more than the migrated data.

The same problem probably occurs for Guided Templates and Guided Decision Tables.
Comment 23 Lukáš Petrovický 2014-02-07 11:19:02 EST
This no longer has a target release of 6.0.0.
Comment 24 Jiri Svitak 2014-03-03 05:20:19 EST
I have tested again with BPMS 6.0.1.ER1, drl files pass, guided rules now work too as well.

QE test suite currently covers only drl files, so updating the qe_test_coverage flag. For further functions issues please file rather a new BZ.
