Description Marek Winkler 2013-07-04 06:53:19 EDT
When a rule defines an interval timer with non-zero delay, it does not fire. The rule uses accumulate and a time window and engine runs in fireUntilHalt() mode in a separate thread. I could not reproduce the problem when creating only a simple rule (without accumulate and time window).

It seems that using real-time or pseudo clock does not have effect on the issue. 

Please see the attached pull request for reproducer and more details. The test case is a bit artificial, but it passes with Beta3.

The rule looks as follows:

rule "Number of metadata events in the last 10 seconds"
timer (int: 1s 10s)
// timer (int: 0s 10s) - passes
    String( this == "events_inserted" )
    $clock: SessionClock()
    $count: Number() from accumulate( $event: MetadataEvent() over window:time(10s),  count( $event ) )
    System.out.println(new Date($clock.getCurrentTime()) + ": Events count: " + $count);

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

Drools 6.0.0-SNAPSHOT
Drools 6.0.0.Beta4

This worked in 6.0.0.Beta3, marking as regression.

How reproducible:

Please run CepFireUntilHaltTimerTest from the pull request (to be attached soon).

Actual results:

The rule in the test does not fire.

Expected results:

The rule should fire making the test pass.

I fixed the rule scheduling when the interval timer is used. However the test needs a further sleep here


to make sure that all the facts insertions are processed before to move the clock forward. Anyway this should be necessary only when using the PseudoClock.

This fix is NOT included in the CR3, but will be part of the CR4.

Verified on BRMS 6.0.0.ER4.
