I've already a bit of code that does simple Spring Integration (and am
clear to donate it to Drools, need to change it to LGPL). Not sure what
you'll think of the quality (!) but already used on a client site, might
be a useful starting point.

I'd like to add two sub projects to Drools to enable better
guice support - especially now we have the RuleAgent. Any volunteers
for this? I'd like to try and standardise, as much as possible, how
Drools works and integrates with IoC containers.
Ultimiately the integration should be quite lightweight - mostly about
creating rulebases and working memory and probably the scoping and
caching of these. I guess you could also have some life cycle
management about objects themselves and auto assertion/retraction to
named working memories. We'd need to define a set of agreed
annotations to define these things, that would work across containers.
I believe the JBoss MC people have done some work in this area, I have
cc'd to see if they have any input or documentation pointers.
The core dev team don't have the time and aren't spring/guice
specialists - so anyone willing to take this up? If we can get
reasonable implementations we will add them to subversion (and the
authors commit rights), and make part of the next release - assuming
they are of good enough quality.
So any takers, maybe we could atleast start at defining what this
level of integration should look like?
