Has anyone successfully implemented a push model for updating rules in a Drools 5.0
application? Here's what I'd like to do:
1. Rules will be authored out-of-process, and serialized KnowledgePackages will be
stored in a database.
2. When the client application starts up (i.e. a regular servlet-based app) it will
fetch the KnowledgePackages from the database and use them to configure a singleton
3. A special UI in the client application will allow authorized users to upload new
KnowledgePackages. When new packages are uploaded they are first persisted in the database
and then used to update the KnowledgeBase at runtime. All subsequent calls to
fireAllRules() should use the rules in the new package.
If anyone has done something like this before then I'd appreciate some advice on how
to manage updates to the KnowledgeBase at runtime.
